Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
We were reminded and encouraged in Church today to remember our first love for our Lord and Savior. We can get troubled with all the cares of the world, and still go to church, pray, and put on quite a good show, while not living in a way that displays and expresses our thanksgiving and gratitude for all that our Lord has done and is doing in our lives. When we count our blessings our life reaches and draws the lost.
Things to Think About
Think about a song you like to sing;
To show and give praise and glory to your risen King.
Think about the joy you bring to His face,
As His sweet bride, lifts to receive His embrace.
Think about the thrill that settles deep within,
With the assurance and peace that only comes from Him.
Think about tomorrow through eyes of faith that see.
He is there patiently waiting for thee.
Think about the love of the Father that sent His Son,
To suffer and die so you would become one.
Think about the love of the Savior that died to make you whole,
That rejoices over you and in you overflows.
Think about the Sweet Spirit that guided the pen.
To testify and record His love and draws and leads another to Him.
Think about the Living Word that called you from the cross
And calls out on every side to the lost.
Think on good things; as you can see,
The list never ends when you believe to receive.
Come, know the One who asks this of you,
Never tires in His toil; as He thinks about you too!
Lord forgive me when I get my mind all tied up with the world. Keep my heart and mind on You, Your Word, and Your work upon this earth.
