2 thoughts on “A path to peace

  1. “A path to peace”. Sometimes I walk in overgrown fields and dense woods. I look for and am always grateful to find a path that someone or some wildlife have made by continually treading on the same narrow area to get to a desired location. Often that location is a stream or pond. So “a path to peace’ and a “steadfast mind” and “trust” speaks to me that to obtain the peace I desire, I have to take some action which is not easy for me; follow a laid out course that involves training my mind and then my behaviors to submit to God’s word, will and ways… to trust Him to get to that place of peace that the scripture Sara posted refers to.
    Peace means a lot of different things to people. I think this is one scripture that defines what real peace is. “I (Jesus) am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27

  2. The footnotes for Isaiah 26:3 from the NIV says: “We can never avoid strife in the world around us, but with God we can know perfect peace even in turmoil. When we are devoted to him, our whole attitude is steady and stable. Supported by God‘s unchanging love and mighty power, we are not shaken by the surrounding chaos (see Philippians 4:7). Do you want peace? Keep your thoughts on in your trust in God.” 🙏✝️ Thankful for His truths in uncertainty.
