“Finally beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8 NRSV

Often, positive thoughts become clouded in fear. Worry robs us of finding content. But, when we allow ourselves to be led by God, He skillfully changes our lives. He opens our eyes to the promise of PEACE and helps us find STRENGTH in Him.
He guides our thoughts. And, as Jesus prepares us to seek the Healer; we humble our hearts for Him. We find courage to remember who nurtures our lives and learn what is pleasing to God. 

God provides opportunities to be calmed by His presence, so we will remember our help comes from Him. And, as we learn to trust, He shows how to find content. He helps us think about what is right and guides us in His Word. He removes doubt and shows how to put in practice what will faithfully honor Him. 

When we have been led to a prayer of praise, HOPE will follow. In peace that passes all understanding, God WILL remove our fear. He will arm us with everything we need to BELIEVE in His power to heal. And, He will show us why He is worthy of praise. 

Let us think about what is true, honorable and pleasing to God. He is NEAR. He is HERE, and HE LOVES US!

Dear God, Thank you for helping us learn to TRUST. Forgive us when we become consumed in thoughts that lead us far away from YOU. Fill us with desire to examine our way of thinking, so we will focus on truth and know what is pleasing to You. We will find calm in the chaos, as we prayerfully allow ourselves to be held in the care of Your everlasting love. Amen
