Keep on Keeping on

  In his letter to the Christians at Philipi, he told them to keep on keeping on.  Ok, he didn't say it quite like that but similiarly he said it.  He said "Do not worry about anything, but in everything by your prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God."--4:4 
Paul goes on to say, "Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me--everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you."--4:9. I love how Paul said, "Then the God of peace will be with you." and how he said, "Keep putting into practice...".

  So when we translate all this into Bobbyology it becomes clear that what Paul was attempting to say in his round-about-way was "Give it to God and keep on keeping on."  Paul knew his stuff, he just wasn't familiar with Bobbyology yet.
