Peace


I will admit it. There are some days when I drop my shield, lower my guard and allow someone, something, some anxiety or fear to steal my peace.


So it's on those days that I remind myself of this wonderful scripture.



"Thou will keep him in perfect peace,

whose mind is stayed

on thee."

(Isaiah 26:3)


Mind on Thee = Perfect Peace


Thou will keep me


I trust.


I've had way too many of those days recently. Way too many.

Time to change...way past time to change.


So, just know that
when I'm not here

I'm with Him...
Pardon the absence...

Work in progress...
Abundant mercy, peace & grace,
MeMaw

Yes, what we all need! A mind of stayed on Him!

The more our minds are focused on Him, and not those things around us, the more we are filled with peace. But, I, as you, struggle with it, and some days are easier than others.

Blessing to you, dear sister-in-Christ.

Amen! Exactly what I needed to hear. Isn't it something the way He allows us to minister to others through our words or actions?
