Some days I just need to keep things simple and God reminded me that if I can do only one thing today, it’s to meditate on His Word. Whether I am going through a transition, a challenging time, or even when things are really good, He reminded me to think on:
My Bible notes say this about Philippians 4:8-9: Paul understood the influence of one’s thoughts on one’s life. What a person allows to occupy his mind will sooner or later determine his speech and his action. Paul’s exhortation to “think about such things” is followed by a second exhortation, “put it into practice”. The combination of virtues listed in verses 8-9 is sure to produce a wholesome thought pattern, which in turn will result in a life of moral and spiritual excellence.
My goal today is to be careful what occupies my thoughts, focus on what is praiseworthy, and put God’s word into practice!!!!
What is your go to scripture verse when you are transitioning or going through a challenge?
