Philippians 4:8 & a Giveaway! Closed
A couple of weeks ago I decided that I was going to start memorizing bible verses. I have always and am constantly reading the bible and know some verses for the most part here and there but haven’t ever memorized them. But lately I have been craving the Word of God like I have never done before. And by that I mean I not only want to read it but I want to saturate my heart and mind with it.
In January I told you about how I have dealt with panic attacks and anxiety. My favorite bible verse and the first one I have memorized comes from Philippians 4:6-8. I found these verses right after I started dealing with anxiety and they have changed my life. Sometimes I literally cling to them because I don’t know what else to do.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and mind in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.
But nature I am a worrier. I come from a family full of them. They often keep me up at night and distract me during the day. But I do my best to guard my mind from the thoughts that I shouldn’t be thinking. When worry or anxiety crosses my mind I test them against the verse above. “Are they true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy?” And when they aren’t I do my best to just give them over to God. Not always easy but something that I am always striving for.
So I am happy to be bringing you this giveaway because it revolves around the verse I love so much. Michelle from Wall Bling has teamed up with me to giveaway a 12×12 wall hanging with the Philippians 4:8 bible verse written on it. I love her. We met through ETSY when the Room-A-Day giveaway was going on and I knew I wanted to team up with her for a future giveaway. She is also an elementary school teacher, mommy, and wife.
