Whatever things are true…

This morning during my quiet time I was reminded of the scripture (that was learned during my childhood in Sunday school and read many times since)  Phillipians 4:8  Whatsoever things are…true …there are many other atteibutes in this verse, that I will be studying over the next few days, but TRUE stuck out in my mind.  I have been praying for a clear thought life, because what I think is who I am, how I speak, how I treat others as well as myself. So the word true struck me, first…like, well I don’t consider myself to be a story teller, I try to stay away from even little white lies…

If I break it down, starting first with my thought life, what is true?

I am a child of God.  Wow, what an amazing truth to let guide my words and actions.  

If I truly believe and live that truth out, I will respond with words of encouragement, and life to others.

If I truly believe and live that truth out, I will respond with actions that are kind and generous.

If I truly believe and live that truth out, I will consider how I take care of my body, mind and spirit. I will choose healthy foods, healthy people and healthy images that enter my mind.

What a wonderful way to end this beautiful Saturday evening.
