Philippians 4:4-20

Stumble Upon Toolbar

4Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.
11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
14Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.
15Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.
16For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
17Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.
18But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
19But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
20Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Thanks for sharing the word this morning! I needed to be reminded that contentment is not found in what I have or even my current circumstances but rather in my Saviour and life in Him.

Thank you! :)

P.S. Congratulations on your baby on the way!

And thank you also for sharing about Curly Girl. I got the book and have been shampoo free for about 2 weeks! And my hair is clean and healthy. :) I don't like the gel on my very fine long hair, but maybe I need another brand. So I'm just using conditioner for now. I also rinse most of the conditioner; so I am going to try leaving it in. My curl is similar to yours but frizzes around the edges. I need to do something different still because air drying my curls leaves them in clumps. My husband was amused and said tonight my hair looks like it hasn't dried! I'm giving it more time and need to figure out how to have the curls yet get more volume (probably the right gel will help--someone suggested moose for my fine hair, but it wasn't mentioned). Thank you for the push!
