Hopeful Friday - A Mindful Attitude

Cielo at The House in the Roses began Hopeful Friday to give blogger friends another opportunity to " celebrate God, to celebrate His mercy and unconditional love, but also a day to celebrate positive thoughts. We need hope to replace our restlessness, we need courage to replace our fear, and we need faith to replace our doubt."

Earlier this week I read the following advice from the apostle Paul sent to the Christians in Philipi. I was amazed at the excellent principles outlined in these verses, and thought I share it with you for Hopeful Friday.
If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ,
if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit,
if any tenderness and compassion,
then make my joy complete by being like-minded,
having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit,
but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
Each of you should look not only to your own interests,
but also to the interests of others.

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
Philippians 2:1-5 NIV

I wish you a wonderful and rejuvenating weekend!

Blessings Carrie...Those are wonderful words of HOPE! I had never heard of this meme! Looks like it is a great one to reflect on God's Word & encourage others.

Thank you for your visit, it was a shower of an unexpected blessing...leftover of ABC's perhaps or Spiritual Sunday! Whatever your reason, I was humbly blessed! Thank you!
