Our prayers fill the heavens as we share our fears and concerns with the Lord. Things don’t change and we pray some more, and then we pray some more. A friend recently reached out with a thankful heart and shared some amazing words of wisdom. She had told her brother that she prayed every day for a certain problem. He said ... God isn't hard of hearing. Just pray once, and then thank Him every day for His work in resolving the issue. That’s faith ... faith is the key ... faith is an important mind set.
Philippians 4:8-9 MSG
“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.”
A faith filled heart and mind Includes mediating on things that are true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, and gracious. Think about the best, not the worst; consider the beautiful parts of life, not the bad and the ugly parts. Praise the Lord for the good things that are happening. Yes, there may be bad things happening, but instead of concentrating on those bad things, concentrate on the good things. The good things are there, and yes, we may have to take the time to locate those good things, but we will because they are there. Faith, thankfulness and gratitude will be the outcome of our search for good.. Thankfulness, a grateful heart and faith, even faith as small as a mustard seed, are the keys that take us out of ourselves, and ultimately, we will discover ourselves living in that faith surrounded by His most excellent harmonies.
