Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


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

Father your peace is not affected by the circumstances of life. Nothing can assail the soul that is at rest in your perfect peace. Your Word tells us: Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)
So Father your perfect, complete and transforming peace will calm our souls and quiet our hearts in and during the onslaughts of life’s traumas. But, I must admit Father that the challenge for me is not trusting you but staying focused, fixed and firm in keeping my eyes on you. There are so many distractions in life with the dysfunction of human government, an unstable economy, civil and world strife, and all the personal issues that vie for attention every day.

But Father by your strength I am resolved to be firmly fixed on you. The words of the song say it so well for me:

Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace
