Whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable……………Philippians 4:8

I (Kim) was reminded yesterday of this passage again, it seems like a wise old friend that reminds me of how to manage the overload of thoughts in the network of my brain.  And I was reminded that this reflects God’s character and His thoughts, and I am overwhelmed, for I reflect on this passage and think, "that would be great, but most moments of the day there is no way…" yet He is this way, even as He reflects on me.  And most of the thoughts that overload the brain network come from some place inside of me that struggles to give myself positive feedback on me.  Yet the One who crafted me and knows me better than I know myself chooses to think on such things, things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable….and the true mystery is that He finds those things in me.  I thought I would share because many friends of mine talk of struggling with this same thing.

This passage is again a friend to me this week in particular as we celebrate that I will have surgery this week (Thursday) for my endo.  We have been wanting to move forward on treating my endo because it is thought that this is a part of the struggle in getting to start our family.  The surgery is laproscopic, no big deal, but yet there is a stirring of anxiety underneath.  And as most of you know, I hate needles, so I fear the IV more than anything else.  But this passage really struck me as I began to acknowledge that stirring.  And as I start to deal with the thoughts and fears.  Afterall, we really are celebrating that I can have surgery, and yet there is that lump in the throat. 

So my desire is for my thoughts to be on whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable as we move through this week and even as we go through that day of surgery and doctors and needles, etc.  And we do ask for the prayers of our friends and family to be for this…our thoughts as well as my health.
