Think on These Things

"Whatever is True, whatever is Noble, whatever is Right, whatever is Pure, whatever is Lovely, whatever is Admirable---if anything is Excellent or Praiseworthy---think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from Me, or seen in Me---put it into practice.  And the God of Peace will be with you!"  (Php 4:8-9)

All the words I capitalized in that verse describe God.  We are told over and over in His Word to..."look at Him"..."fix our eyes on Him"...."consider Him"..."draw near to Him"..."seek Him"...etc...!  I believe God allows us to see Him every moment of everyday if we are looking.  Because we live in this world it's easy to take our eyes off of Him.  I know that's when I become discouraged and even fearful.  John 16:33b says:  "In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world!"  I am so thankful for His grace...He doesn't have to show me His Glory around me each day...but He does ;)!!

                                                          "Let The Words of my Mouth"

Let the words of my mouth
Be pleasing to You, pleasing to You
The meditation of my heart
Be pleasing to you, pleasing to You
Oh Lord, my strength
And my Redeemer

Whatever is true
Whatever is pure
Whatever is lovely
Whatever is worthy
Think on these things
Think on these things

Let the words of my mouth
Be pleasing to You
Pleasing to You
