31 Days of Joy: Day 30 – Comfort and Joy in Philippians

Before I read today’s devotion I was having small moments of panic realizing the expenses I have coming up – car insurance, new battery for computer, and Rommie’s hip medicine.

I sat in the dining room chair this morning to read my devotion. “Hopefully I can find some comfort in my devotion.” I said to Rommie.

When I opened the book to today’s devotion, this was the verse:

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Philippians 4:8 (ESV)

The devotion was all about changing your thinking, because what you think about you bring about. Focus on what you have, focus on the positive, and focus on the Lord.

After all, the Holy Spirit is more powerful than my chattering monkey brain.

A good message to read since my seasonal job ends tomorrow.

Yes, I found comfort in today’s devotion but I also felt a connection to God’s love and peace. In other word’s I found joy.
