Everything is praiseworthy
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, 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.9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Gracious Father, In Jesus name I give thanks for Your favor in our lives. When we get caught up in the mundane and superficial aspects of life, we lose sight of what is true, what is noble, what is right, what is pure, what is lovely, what is admirable and that is praiseworthy. I invite You into my heart and ask that You make my heart soft and receptive so that I can appreciate Your favor and to see more clearly. Forgive me when I fall short of Your best. I can not do this alone, I do not want to do this alone. Give me strength & patience, give me understanding & clarity of Your plan. I will have peace and joy through it ALL. Thank for for Your beautiful grace. I will put into practice Your word!!!! In Jesus name....Amen!
