“Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things.” – Philippians 4:8
There are a lot of yucky, depressing, ugly and scary things in the world that try to steal my attention and terrify me. It can happen by reading the news, watching TV, going to Walmart, even by revisiting things in your past that you’re not proud of. But in Christ, I am a new creation, the old is past, the new has come. He wants me to keep my eyes on Him, on the true and noble and lovely things that He has made and that are to come. Like my dog when he’s cuddled up in his bed, looking like a big stuffed animal. Like hugs from my sweet children who call me Mommy. Like a kiss at the end of a hard day from the handsome man who loves me and married me. Like a phone call from my parents, talking over life and realizing that we are so blessed. The sun in the morning, a beautiful moon at night, fireflies outside my window. True, noble, lovely. Be blessed today, Lisa
