Day 137 May 17 Philippians 4:6-7

Philippians 4:4-9Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.It is much too easy for me to become negative, depressed and bitter. I have to consciously choose to think on good things. I have to choose to rejoice in God. I have to choose not to worry. I have to choose to focus on God.Lord, forgive me for complaining. It eats away at my faith and it eats away at the faith of those around me. Let me be fills with thankfulness and joy today. Let me focus on you today and the things you have done for me.Help me to ask you for help. Fill me with a sense of your wholeness. Displace worry with your presence.Let me fill my mind on the beautiful, not the ugly. This day let me be immersed in your peace. Show me your love as I take your hand and walk through this day.
