"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."
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!
