ABCs of the Word, "N"

"Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again.  Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all.   The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Finally, brothers, 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."

Philippians 4:4-8

This is part of a letter Paul wrote to the people in Philippi.  Our circumstances, like his, most likely in house arrest, do not have to dampen our worship of or relationship with God.  We let them too often, but I am so thankful God continues to woo me back into more intimacy with him.  He truly is near!

  1. Great post Sue! Noble...that's a good one for me to ponder today. Hope life is going well. I imagine you are working hard outside...all the rain we've been having has made everything in the gardens very happy!

  2. "He truly is near!" I am so thankful this is true even when it doesn't 'feel' like it is.

  3. OH, I love this, Sue. This is one of the scriptures I have painted around the border of my laundry room. Laundry brings out the gripes in me, I'm afraid, so I try to remind myself to be gentle!

  4. I've been visiting your "corner" blog frequently - marveling at the beauty of your yard. Somehow I missed your "Branch" blog....but was delighted to find it today. It's encouraging to share the two interests these two blogs display.
