As I was pondering what to share with you today, the scripture verse from Philippians 4:8 kept coming to my mind.
"Finally brethren, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things."
I have many favourite verses in the Bible but this one pretty much tops the list!
Life sometimes comes at you with a vengeance. Sometimes it's not easy to keep a smile on your face, or a positive attitude, when faced with adversity.
But when the chips are down, I find if I keep my mind on all the attributes listed in Philippians 4:8, it is easier to keep a positive attitude. Where there is faith in God, there is hope! The two go together.
When I began my walk with the Lord, I came to Him empty-handed. I had nothing to give Him but myself, which wasn't much! I was lonely and lost!
But the trade off was incredible and literally, out of this world!
He has also blessed me with a loving husband who happens to be my best friend, three of the most adorable sons that any mother could hope for, two wonderful daughters-in-law, and four darling grandsons. Yes, even on my worst day, I can tell you, I am blessed! That's my story today; what's yours?
