Prince of Peace

"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock."

Isaiah 26:3-4 (ESV)

This is today's verse of the day over in "Scripture" on the side. It is always so apt for my life! God keeps those whose minds stay in Him in perfect peace. Ohhhh I need to do better at this!

My life in the world is over, I know that. This life is Jesus' now. But oh how I tend to distract myself from that fact.

I feel very distracted lately. I think a lot about men, marriage, that kind of thing. And whenver I think about a job, I get a little nauseous. Not because I don't want one, but because it's been almost ten months since I was laid off. I'm stressed about it. And when something stresses me out, I tend to shut it up in a little storage closet in my brain, and everytime I come across it, I shove it away again. Not really good with stress. At all.

Perfect peace. I've felt the Lord's perfect peace before. It's amazing, indescribable, a completion. Humans were designed to always have that perfect peace.
