Bible Journaling. Philippians 1:4 -5

Bible Journaling
I haven't forgotten to about Bible Journaling.  I started with Philippians 1:2 and am taking progressive pics.  I will be posting them next week!  Yikes!  

Philippians 1:4

Imagine....Paul and Timothy are in jail.
Yet, whenever they pray for these saints, the members of the first chuch they planted, they always pray with joy!

with joy
even in prison.

Because of their support for Paul.

These saints supported him from the first day until the day of the letter he was writing.

Through thick and thin.

I'm writing this series based only on what I read at the time as if I knew nothing about Paul or the Philippians.

So, from that stand point, I can only believe that 
1) The Philippians were supporting him with more than money.  
2) It was long term.  

A quick internet search confirms my opinion.

So, how can we apply this to our lives?
Is there someone who needs your support right now?  

If you can, invest yourself into them.
It will be a sacrifice.
It will take time.
It will be one of the biggest blessings in your life.
You won't regret it.
You see,
you can't out give God.

Or perhaps you're the one who needs support.
Maybe you are facing a serious illness.
Maybe you are struggling emotionally.
Maybe you are struggling spiritually.
Maybe you are simply struggling.

person needs someone to be there

My dear friend, if this is you, 
believe it or not, 
if you will let your guard down
and let a friend know how you're feeling,
you may find hope in a seemingly hopeless situation.

You have the best big brother in the world!
Here is a letter from Him:

If you need somebody who would listen and help you in times of trouble. Pray to God. I'll talk to you if you need a shoulder to lean on 😊 just ask me to DM you, or just DM me. God bless you!
Dear Friend,
This is my truth - 
and it can be yours as well.
