Think Upon Such Things . . .

Thoughts by Nick Schmidt free photo #15612

Whatever things that are good,
whatever that builds up hope
think upon such things . . .
and they will help you to cope.

Whatever things that are true,
whatever that exposes God’s light
think upon such things . . .
and they will make your life bright.

Whatever things that are lovely,
whatever that God splendidly made
think upon such things . . .
and they will never pale or fade.

Whatever things that are just,
whatever that makes you honest
think upon such things . . .
and they will bless you as promised.

Whatever things that are noble,
whatever that will bring you peace
think upon such things . . .
and they will never fail or cease.

Whatever things that are of men,
whatever that causes you to sin
think not about such things . . .
and your thoughts they won’t win!

Philippians 4:8
King James Version

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true,
whatever things are noble, whatever things
are just, whatever things are pure, whatever
things are lovely, whatever things are of good
report, if there is any virtue and if there is
anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”

Get Dressed!

Spiritual Warfare by Douglas Shelton free photo #5902

I thought I heard God today,
as I was laying in my bed
while my nightly slumbers
were still staggering in my head.

I opened my eyes up slowly,
and began to look around
I turned my ears towards
the mesmerizing  sound.

My mind became alert,
to the cooing, I was hearing
I tossed my blankets off
and arose without fearing.

There it was again,
a sound worth my pursuing
for I recognized the voice
of the Holy Spirit’s wooing.

I opened up my Bible,
and there it was in a verse
a promise for today
God wanted to converse.

I read the whole chapter,
and knew that I was blessed
for now I don’t have to decide . . .
how I should get dressed!

Ephesians 6:11-17
King James Version

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day,and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:”
