These verses have come up over and over the last few weeks I have to share them as we close off April and start May
Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
4 Rejoice in union with the Lord always! I will say it again: rejoice!
5 Let everyone see how reasonable and gentle you are. The Lord is near!
6 Don’t worry about anything; on the contrary, make your requests known to God by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving.
7 Then God’s shalom, passing all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with the Messiah Yeshua.
8 In conclusion, brothers, focus your thoughts on what is true, noble, righteous, pure, lovable or admirable, on some virtue or on something praiseworthy.
9 Keep doing what you have learned and received from me, what you have heard and seen me doing; then the God who gives shalom will be with you.
