I don't know about you, but my thoughts are some of my greatest enemies at times. Understanding how to flip them around is invaluable--especially with all the chaos around me. So, when my friends suggested the study, Get Out of Your Head (Gooyh) by Jennie Allen, I dove in...not once, but twice! It's really good! She offers practical wisdom on stopping spiraling thoughts and infusing our thought life with what God says is true.
In Jennie's last session of the study, she offers a chance to look up some definitions for the virtues in Philippians 4:8. This was enlightening to me--not just because I love original language--but because I realized how those virtues had been excellent tools to get me out of my darkest seasons. I may not have even realized it at the time, but God worked regardless of my distraction!
On Monday, November 16, I am starting a blog series, Whatever Is. I think, especially during this pandemic season, the only way to peace is casting our attention upward. And, in my opinion, those virtues listed in Philippians 4:8 are the gateways to that peace.
The posts will be quick reads, but helpful food-for-thought inspired by Paul's suggestion to the Philippians:
"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."
