“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8 (ESV)
This is simply an amazing and profound verse! As I write this verse out countless times the last few months, drawing on each word. This verse has looked me in the face daily for months; as I embark on a new year to deepen what it means to walk this walk… Life can be become so rich, meaningful and peaceful by studying God’s Word.
Though I may fail, words on repeat and stick in my heart and mind (besides those from my own loving pastor), is from the lovely Anne Graham Lotz, “read it and live it out.”
Never thought I would love a book so much. My Bible. The true and living guidebook for life. What a remarkable journey and the blessing to be able to do our best to live it out every day in excellence. In hopes that we live each day intentionally and with purpose.
(I love to kayak – probably one of the best and sweetest activities I have ever experienced and this is one of many images I captured in my boat in 2016)
