Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable (Philippians 4:8).
The word “whatever” is mentioned in the Bible, and it’s also used in casual conversation. One definition Webster gives us for this word is “no matter what (can happen or you do).” This is relevant, especially with the health situations we are experiencing now.
An LWML sister found a Bible study on the LWML website that speaks to “whatever.” “Whatever — Keeping Your Heart in Tune with Whatever Life Brings” by Anneke Hudson. It’s based on Philippians 4:8-9: Whatever is true … if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. How appropriate this message is for us in times such as these! Rest assured, no matter what life brings us, we praise and thank God that we have the promise of our Savior. He is holding us close to His heart, no matter what.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your promise to be with me always, no matter what situations come my way. Help me to remember that You have my hand in Yours, leading me day by day. Amen.
