Choose Peace


“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”  Isaiah 26:3

Each day as we get up in the morning and dress for our day, we have choices to make. Greater then, should I wear the blue shirt or the brown one is, what will my mindset be? Will I keep my mind on Jesus and the amazing things he’s done for me or will I focus on all of my problems and woes. Will I look for opportunities to show his love or will I focus on how horribly selfish everyone else is.

Life’s all about choices and what we choose to focus on determines where we’ll end up. That’s what I’m going for this Friday. To be in a constant state of trusting God so that His peace will accompany me wherever I go and whatever I do. I can’t be responsible for what anyone else does, just me! My choice is to assess every thought with a question; Does this take my thoughts toward God or away from Him? If it’s away, I’m not going down that road. If it takes me closer to God, I’ll stay right there.

I want His peace most of all.  Regardless of what comes my way, tries to distract me or steal from me, I will hold fast to His provision of perfect peace-nothing missing or broken! It’s a challenge sometimes, well most of the time, but I will continue casting down vain imaginations and everything that tries to be bigger than God.

My heart is set on you, Lord. It’s set on listening to Your voice and obeying Your whispers. You lead me into all truth and my heart trusts in You. I trust You with my body, my mind and my spirit. I trust You with my children, my husband and my finances. I trust You to keep Your covenant promises because they are YES and AMEN! To You be all glory and honor Lord God.
