40 Songs for 40 Days – Day 28

Please refer to the March 5, 2014 – Ash Wednesday post for the Introduction to this Music Experience for Lent.

Just a reminder that Day 29 will be posted for Monday. Have a blessed Sunday.

FSFD028 Song Title: Celebrate God – Philippians 4:4-9 (If you don’t have a Bible handy, you can read this passage at BibleGateway.com)

Celebrate God, all day every day. Revel in Him in every way.

Don’t fret or worry, but instead pray.

Letting God know your thanksgiving today.

All your concerns, all your uncertainty, will change to wholeness,

come together for good.

Then you will think on things noble and true.

And Christ will be at the center of you. (Repeat from beginning.)

Celebrate God, all day every day. Revel in Him in every way.

Don’t fret or worry, but instead pray.

Letting God know your thanksgiving today.

Letting God know your thanksgiving today.

Letting God know your thanksgiving today.


About Bonita B. Evans

Since I was young I have felt God's presence in my life. I have been singing Christian music since I was a small child. Reading and studying the Bible have become more and more important in my life. In 2008, songs started coming into my head when reading, driving and also sleeping, so I decided to write them down and share them. For Christmas 2008, I recorded a ten song CD for my family and friends. For Advent 2009, I shared the first version of "A Flame in My Heart" with my church, family and friends. In 2011, I created and shared in this blog "40 Songs for 40 Days" for Lent. For Advent 2011 and 2012 I posted revised versions of "A Flame in My Heart". For Lent 2013 I reposted "40 Songs for 40 Days". I am not sure why this has all happened but I consider it to be a gift from God.

    It seems strange that a man in prison would be telling a church to rejoice. But Paul’s attitude teaches us an important lesson: Our inner attitudes do not have to reflect our outward circumstances. Paul was full of joy because he knew that no matter what happened to him, Jesus Christ was with him. Several times in this letter Paul urged the Philippians to be joyful, probably because they needed to hear this. It’s easy to get discouraged about unpleasant circumstances or to take unimportant events too seriously. If you haven’t been joyful lately, you may not be looking at life from the right perspective.
    God’s peace is different from the world’s peace. True peace is not found in positive thinking, in absence of conflict, or in good feelings. It comes from knowing that God is in control. Our citizenship in Christ’s Kingdom is sure, our destiny is set, and we can have victory over sin. Let God’s peace guard your heart against anxiety.
    It’s not enough to hear or read the Word of God or even to know it well. We must also put it into practice. How easy it is to listen to a sermon and forget what the preacher said. How easy it is to read the Bible and not think about how to live differently. How easy it is to debate what a passage means and not live out the meaning. Exposure to God’s Word is not enough, it must lead to obedience.

      Dear Dorey,
      Thanks for all your work in bringing us these wonderful excerpts from the Life Application Study Bible. I know I struggle with being obedient in the don’t fret or worry department, especially when it comes to my loved ones. I pray that as my belief and trust in God grow and mature so will my obedience. We live in a world that constantly bombards us with fear in order to control us. I just heard yesterday that food insurance is being sold in case of future food shortages. Will anything the world has to offer really make us feel safe or would it be better to trust that God will provide for our needs as He has promised?
