Whatsoever Things Are Lovely…

I don’t know about you but, during this time, I’ve been having to practice applying this scripture more than I’ve ever had to before.
Our minds are truly more powerful than many realize. I don’t find it coincidental that God’s word urges us to meditate on those things that bring us joy and peace. I believe that being mindful of what we focus our thoughts on is crucial to our mental and emotional health.
Yes, I know. It’s much easier said than done. But, your health is worth striving for. Isn’t it also interesting that meditation takes effort? It actually makes me think of lost treasure, or a prize that’s being worked towards. You’ve heard the saying, “Anything worth having is worth fighting for.” We strive for medals, titles, degrees, wealth, fame, etc. Yet, none of these things are more valuable than our PEACE.
Isn’t your peace worth your deliberate practice at working towards and maintaining it?
What are you choosing to focus and meditate on today?

Philippians 4:8 Finally believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].
