Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,
think on these things.
[Philippians 4:8]

During your prayer times

Begin with prayer; ask God for real guidance to know what is best for your life and how to accomplish it. Then read the following Scripture passages:

  • Proverbs 3:5-8 – Trusting in the Lord;
  • Matthew 6:25-33 – Do Not Worry;
  • Romans 12 – A Living Sacrifice, Humble Service in the Body of Christ, and Love in Action; and
  • Philippians 4:4-13 – Final Exhortations & Thanks for Their Gifts.

Read them more than once; do not presume that you got the whole point the first time through.

Then pray again asking for the Holy Spirit to illuminate your thoughts; that God’s thoughts would become your own. Just sit quietly and ponder what you have read.

Take time to think, jot down or draw on paper, or use a recorder for the ideas and pictures that come to you. Record them as they come; you can prioritize them later.

When you come to the point that you feel wrung out, spent of any further ability to think or imagine; stop. Give thanks to God for what’s come forth, leave your quiet place and rejoin the world.
