Thanking our good God

Rejoice in the Lord always.
Again I say, Rejoice!
Let your sweet spirit be known
to everyone.
The Lord is near.

Do not worry about anything,
but in everything,
by thankful
prayer and petition,
make your requests known to God.
And the peace of God,
which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds
in Christ Jesus.

Finally, Beloved,
whatever is true,
whatever is honorable,
whatever is just,
whatever is pure,
whatever is pleasing,
whatever is commendable –
if there is anything of excellence
or worthy of praise,
think on these things.

Keep on doing what
you have learned and received
and heard and seen in Christ,
and the God of peace shall
be with you all.
