Last week I read in Isaiah something that was satisfyingly thirst quenching. I've been mulling it over ever since.
"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the rock eternal." Isaiah 26:3-4
Whose mind is steadfast...trusting in Him.
A perfect peace.
Trust in the Lord forever.
Not just in the good times.
Not just when you are scared.
I've been window shopping online for the right Christmas card for this year. None seem quite right. Too few words to express what we truly are feeling this year. Peace, Yes. Joy, Yes. But can I also add thankful...you know, from the thanksgiving card section?
But now, I'm thinking I'd also like to add "keeping our mind steadfast on Him". It's the only way to have those genuine, steadfast feelings of peace and joy and thankfulness. "Steadfast feelings" is otherwise practically an oxymoron with out the Lord in it.
Perhaps I will have our card created this year:).
