"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

The sound of Your voice.

"The sound of Your voice."

The following text was shared with me, so I share it too... "The sound of Your voice."

Sweet Lord, I wait for the sound of Your voice as it gently, softly whispers through the stillness, as it lingers in the quietness, as it fills the air around me. It enters my heart, filling every vacuum and flooding my mind with light and love and warmth. I hear it, and I am renewed, refreshed, refilled and happy. Hearing Your voice solves everything. It melts me. It changes me. It makes me more like You.

Your voice is what I live for. I wait for it, I feed on it, I crave it, I want it. Your voice created everything; it is the beginning and the end of all things. Your voice is the power behind the rotation of Heaven and Earth. Your voice is so great and majestic that it can be felt in all creations, yet can only be heard in the quiet and the stillness. Your voice is made for all the world to hear and witness, yet delights to speak to the individual. How priceless and wonderful is Your voice that speaks into our hearts and into our minds, and makes known the secrets of my own heart. You speak to me as a demonstration of Your love for me. Your voice is the very love of the One who made us all. Your voice is the heart of God speaking to me.
