Whatever Is Lovely…

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. (Philippians 4:8 NASB)


Let us dwell on the positives today. God has chosen to bless our home with specific children that He has chosen to make up our families. Whether birthed from the womb or from our hearts…we were chosen with the purpose to parent them. 

There are difficult days. And many days when I can focus not on the above, but on the negative. The trials. The bad attitudes. The lies. The deceitfulness. The manipulation. Then I turn inward towards myself instead of crying out to Abba Father. 

Let’s make today a day when we focus on this passage from Philippians 4:8. As you go through the day come back and share the positive things that you see in your child. Watch your heart rejoice!!

  1. Wonderfully said. I’ve thought about the same thing in the past few months. I do have to say I’m struggling with contentment when I see the sunshine and no winter coats,when we are experiencing arctic temps and have few feet of snow laying about:) keep looking up! D.
