Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. - Philippians 4:8 (NRSV)
Although I am generally an optimist, I know things don’t always turn out well. Financial fears sometimes come true. Biopsy results sometimes show cancer. People disappoint us. Problems arise.I was often confused by Paul’s instruction in the verse quoted above. He asks us to dwell upon all those positive qualities....
Whatever life brings, God is here to help me through it.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
