Whatsoever

Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
Father God, show me your Truth. Help me to see the lies of the enemy and discern your truth from deception.

whatsoever things are honest,
Lord, help our relationships be built on honesty. Help us to always be upright in your sight.

whatsoever things are just,
Just…there’s that word again. I’ve heard it recently several times. God, help us be a people of justice. Help us to see injustice and be a light.

whatsoever things are pure,
You are a God of such purity. Your plans are pure, your creation began as pure, undefiled, free from contamination, no traces of impurity. White as snow. Father, let me be pure and blameless in your sight.

whatsoever things are lovely,
Father, I could bask in your loveliness. Your Spirit is beautiful. I adore you and your ways.

whatsoever things are of good report;
May we seek to be honorable and favored in your sight. May our reputation be one that pleases You. Of all the things that people may say about me in this life, my prayer is that what will be remembered most is “She loved Jesus!”

if there be any virtue,
May we be heightened and drawn to virtue.

and if there be any praise,
We were created to praise You and bring You glory. The seas roar and even the rocks cry out and proclaim your name!

think on these things.
Think. Ponder. Meditate. Consume yourself with these things. Do not let darkness loom over your thoughts, but think on these things. Godly things, precious things, His ways. Father, guide me to walk in your wisdom and think on these things.

Philippians 4:8King James Version (KJV)

My, how time flies!

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since I have blogged! Summer time fun has kept me pretty busy…and it’s awesome. I have had three or four blog posts ready to go in my mind, but haven’t sat down and put them together. There has been some really cool stuff going on though. We really enjoyed having company over the holiday weekend. One of my dearest friends came to visit and it was awesome to just enjoy each others families. One of the greatest gifts in life is to have Christian friends! I love them so much!

Another thing that is taking some of my time is that I am finally writing my book! I am very excited to actually be putting my ideas into print. It is not a book about my life. It is a fiction novel that I’ve been thinking about for almost a year. I think we all have great ideas all the time, but seldom do we act on it. I’ve been that person over the years and this time, I want to do something with it, so it’s kind of a big deal to me. Super excited!

With the vacation mentality we’ve all had through the holiday weekend, I haven’t really stuck to good eating habits. Cookouts and homemade ice cream…yeah, I did partake. So now it’s back to real life and making better choices. =)

Have a fantastic day, my friends! Praying blessings over you today!
