12/17/2018 — the book of Philippians

OK, so I am one of “those people” who have their clothes laid-out the night before for the next day and who cannot begin work until each item on my desk is in it’s right place.  Now, I do believe that planning and organizing is generally a good thing.  That is of course unless conditions change, the organization fails, and “worry” enters the picture.

Maybe that is why Philippians is one of my favorite readings.  One of my “breath prayer” verses is:

Philippians 4: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    Between Ephesians and Philippians, I find so many of my favorite passages. Zealous Paul cuts to the heart of what it means to live as a child of the light.

    Today I am trying to wrap my head around God, incarnate, comes to earth as Jesus and that has to mean He also hung on the cross. Head scratching, He is still bigger than I can completely understand or measure. I’m grateful for that spiritual magnitude.
