Whatever

The word "whatever" used to be my favorite phrase. I would say it constantly! People were always questioning the term and it's meaning. There's no need to question it; it means whatever you want it to mean... literally.

I happened upon Phil 4:8 one day... "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

Wow. WHATEVER to that! Sometimes this is easier said than done. Ok, a lot of times! I TRY to think about whatever.... but trying isn't good enough. There are so many times when my thoughts have wondered to things that are not right, lovely, and certainly not admirable. This is something I have really been praying about; that my thoughts and actions speak... whatever. Whatever HE wants me to think and speak. Not what I want. So simple, yet so hard...

I use whatever way too much also, and it's usally not whatever is lovely, pure, or noble either. Perhaps it is time to become more lovely, pure, and noble. No, not perhaps, most definitely
