Read Philippians 4.2-9
“.. Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! ..” (Phil.4.4)
You may face tension in some relationships .. or circumstances occasioning anxiety: but whatever your situation, lift your eyes to the Lord – who He is, what He’s done, why He’s so worthy. Look to Him to sort things out: and focus on what’s excellent.
Are there people with whom you’re struggling to get along? Seek help today – from the Lord, and if need be from others too.
How might you discipline yourself not to concentrate on what’s flawed and false, but on what’s true and noble and good?
Prayer: Keep me from a critical, complaining spirit, Lord, and fill my heart instead with a deep, enduring gratitude. You have done so much for me and proved Yourself so kind.
