First time I read this, it blew me away. Kinda long, fom PHILippians 4.
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
(I'll paraphrase) Finally, whatsoever things are true, honest, just,pure, lovely, or of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Those things, which you have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
((Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound:
every where and in all things I am instructed to be full and to be hungry, both abound and to suffer need.))
I can do all things through Christ which strengheneth me.
Thank you apostle Paul. Those words have meant everything to me. I'm still amazed when I read them.
Thanks, Shar for getting me to open this book again.
