Fun, Fun, Fun

That's what Bible study was tonight - fun---fun---fun! We had "Bad Hair Day" munchies, lots of talking and fellowship and God's Word. We talked about what to do when we have a bad hair day, when someone gives us a bad day, and when we are everybody else's bad hair day! :>) We all decided we needed a touch of Philippians - the book about J O Y even as Paul was being held a prisoner in Rome.

We all need a little about that joy. We need to learn to be content in all situations (Phil. 4:11-13); to rejoice (Phil. 4:4); not to be anxious but in all things pray with thanksgiving(Phil. 4:6); to do EVERYTHING without complaining (Phil. 2:14-16); to do NOTHING out of selfish humility. And of course the ONLY way we can do this is through God who works in us to will and act according to His good purpose (Phil. 2:13).

Yes, God was speaking to us tonight. We need humility, thankfulness, peace, contentment, grace. That will turn our Bad Hair Days into a Philippians Kind of Day! Praise Him!!!
