Philippians 2:15. Covered In Love


Philippians 2:15
Scripture
Observation
Doing everything without grumbling or arguing can be difficult.  But, look at the reason why God asks us to do this!  

So that we may become 
1) blameless
2) pure
3) children of God
4) without fault in a warped and crooked generation
5) to shine among them like stars in the sky.

We become.
This is a process.
As we learn to do EVERYTHING without 
grumbling or arguing,
we become all these things.

It takes time.
And it's worth it.

Application
These last few days, I've kept this Scripture in the back of my mind. 

God has helped me to control 
even my thoughts so as not 
to grumble mentally or argue.  
Guess what happened in my heart!!!!

My empathy, love, understanding, tenderness, patience and gentleness 
grew even more!

I learned that if we focus on the negative,
we receive negative.

But, my dear reader, if we learn to focus on building the character of Christ in ourselves,

We become free.

Prayer
LORD, thank You for this time together!  I am learning so much from this study and pray that others are blessed as well.  Help me to remember what You are teaching me that I may live it out.  When I fail, gently help me to ask forgiveness and to forgive myself!  Father, life is so much more pleasant with grumbling or arguing!  Thank You for teaching me this lesson!
Amen.
                                     
Covered In Love
I finished my January/February 
Covered in Love blocks.  
Kat's tutorial was so easy to follow!
My blocks seem to have a 
mind of their own 
as they chose their finished sizes!
My daughter suggested that I add
1/8" to my cuts 
so that my blocks won't be too small.
How do you all manage this quandary?

I am learning so much via Kat's 
Covered In Love Block Drives!
They fulfill such an important need!
Here is the tutorial for the 
March-April drive 
just in case you're interested!
