This spectacular piece of artwork by Tamara Peterson inspired me to do a word study of Philippians 4:8 while worshipping with our worship leader, Kristi Brown, to the beautiful new hymn, Ever Be …Faithful You have been and faithful You will be, You pledge Yourself to me and it's why I sing, Your praise will ever be on my lips, ever be on my lips…
NASB: Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
Lord Jesus, what a privilege it is to worship You! Purify my heart and my thoughts so that I can learn to worship You continually. Help me to perform all of my duties today in joyful obedience to You so that even my work becomes authentic worship—keeping my heart and my thoughts fixed on You….Faithful You have been and faithful You will be, You pledge Yourself to me and it's why I sing, Your praise will ever be on my lips, ever be on my lips…In Your Mighty Name we pray, amen.
