Staying positive

Philippians 4:8 “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.”

Colossians 3:2 “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

It is easy to be discouraged in the missions field. God reminded me of the 2 verses above to stay positive and hopeful in Him. 🙂



  1. Wow… very timely. I was feeling discouraged about my own weaknesses and inadequacy in children’s ministry… which made me feel incompetent, to be honest. But thanks for sharing the verses…. they help remind me tt tho i’m weak, i can do all things thru Christ who gives me strength.

    Incidentally, not sure if u guys know this, but I learnt (i hope i rmb correctly!) that the Greek word for ‘do’ in “I can do all things…” also means ‘to endure’… so sometimes it’s not so much the juggernaut kind of overcoming tt we tend to imagine, but the slow hold-the-trenches-and-keep-crawling-on kind of endurance tt we’re called to give in order to overcome.

    1. Thanks for sharing your insights! Pray that God encourages you in the children’s ministry. I believe that you have a strong gifting in this ministry. Continue to press on! 🙂
