"You will keep him in perfect peace who's mind is stayed on you" Isaiah 26:3

In the busyness of our every day lives, its easy to be consumed with our jobs, our families, our friends and our hobbies and forget to peacefully centre ourselves. In a world full of war, hate and turmoil, its hard to find a place of peace in our souls.

"World Peace" is that term that every body wants, the phrase every beauty queen states is her utmost goal, and something nobody really believes in.

Where is that place of tranquility, where you can step back from the world, from its horrors and terrors, from its nagging for your constant attention, and be still? It doesn't need to be a place of beauty & serenity, but it does need to be a place where you can quiet your mind.

It is said: "There is no peace,' says the Lord, 'for the wicked." Isaiah 48:22

In this world full of so much wicked, where is the hope for our peace. Our hope can only rest in God. "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27

My prayer for you today is that you have a place where you can be still, and allow the peace that comes from God give you rest and hope.


  1. Knowing both sides of peace - what I mistook to be real peace before I came to know Jesus, I can tell you there is no comparison. I think I used to mistake peace for quiet or a lack of things to accomplish, while the peace I have found in my faith can be with me even when I am busy. Thank you for your prayer for us out here!

  2. Peace ... I find peace when I am home alone or in the middle of nowhere. Each summer I camp alone... At night there you can see a billion stars... It is times like this that I find peace ...

  3. Peace is in a our mind itself...we just become ignorant to it.

    A point well said by you.:)

  4. Peace is the most important thing next to love. Real peace which comes from God is experienced even in the midst of a tempest.

    Real peace has very little to do with what is happening around you, it comes from knowing where you will end up and with Whom. Circumstances cause turmoil and upset and frustration, but absolutely nothing can take away the Peace of God

  6. that picture makes me want spring and summer to come faster ...and peace is the inside peace you get when you know the Lord is with you through all things
