ABC's of the Word - Thursday - "F"

As Thursday approached, I have allowed my mind to ponder the letter "F", giving room for the Holy Spirit to bring to mind what God would want me to Focus on myself and share with my Friends and Family. All week, my thoughts remained on one word...FINALLY. So, I reflected on the word FINALLY as used in God's Word, I thought I would share the verses that Filled my mind this week.

Definition of Finally -
1.at the final point or moment; in the end.
2.in a final manner; conclusively or decisively.
3.at last; eventually; after considerable delay

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

I have had many a season where this verse has meant much to me, but nothing like the season of the last few weeks. My mind obsesses over wrongs that I have been guilty of and wrongs that have been aimed toward me. I think on regrets, guilt, disappointment, and depression. But this verse brings me right back to where God wants me to be in my stinking thinking and my thoughts are once again a lovely Fragrance to Him. DECISIVELY!

Ephesians 6:10

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

The only strength I have is His. Need I say more? I am weak, but He is strong. AT LAST!

Finally!

I love Philip 4:8. What a reminder God gave us of the things we need to focus on. He knew we would struggle with the thoughts of depression, guilt, worldly things, etc. and need a reminder like this. And what a difference it makes in our minds, attitude, emotions etc when we are focused properly on these things!

Thank you for taking part in this. As I've shared on others blogs this selfishly feels like its all just for me. I know it's not, that all taking part are being bathed by His Word but they are really ministering to me.

Hi Liz!
Wonderful verses and wonderful to see God bringing them to your mind and heart. It's such a battle of our minds to finally let God lead us in peace there. Peace in our hearts and minds no matter what is thrown at us. Have a great day there in Texas y'all! :0)
I'm finally awake in California and my F verses are up...
