And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (Philippians 4:8)
Well, our vacation has ended and in the morning, it’s back to work as usual. It’s been raining all day, which to me is a bonus. Saw a few extravagant lightening bolts and heard the deep rumbling sounds of thunder too. Kind of reminded me of the Midwestern storms I experienced growing up. I was always more afraid of the harmless crackling sound of thunder rather than the lightening, which of course is quite harmful. LOL For some reason, I thought if the thunder was loud enough, it would rip our house apart. Silly me. I spent many nights close to suffocation trying to protect myself by hiding under a blanket until the thunder stopped. 😀
The idea of thunder being harmful was all in my mind. I’m quite certain one of my siblings had something to do with it. 😀 Being the youngest made me an easy target for brainwashing. LOL What’s my point?
One of my favorite and most applied bible verses is Philippians 4:8. (Actually, the entire chapter, but let’s focus on just this verse for this post.) Sometimes it’s easy to be distracted. The enemy would love for us to focus on everything except the things of God. He’ll use whatever it takes to steer us off course. Things we like and dislike. Activities, foolishness, and thoughts. It’s up to us to let him succeed or not. I choose NOT! Focus on Him!
Just blogging it out . . . OH and Happy Monday Night! 😀
Continue to pray!
