Wednesday in the Word - Isaiah 26:3


The word "peace" has been in my mind a lot lately.  My friend, Bethany, pointed this verse out at our Bible study  and it spoke so clearly to my heart.

If there's one consistent feeling that was present in my life throughout everything with Isaac, it would be PEACE. Sometimes I find myself questioning that peace.  I wonder if it's okay to have felt, and still feel, so much peace surrounding such a sad and difficult time in my life.  But, peace doesn't mean happiness.  It doesn't mean that I don't miss Isaac, or that I'm never sad.  Peace is a whole separate feeling. 

When you know Christ, and spend time with Him and His Word...peace comes into your life.  With Jesus, peace can be felt even in the strongest storm.  HE keeps the peace in my life because I make a daily choice to TRUST IN HIM.

  4. I LOVE this verse from Isaiah. For one so young, you are very wise. Peace can only be found in relationship with Jesus. I spent way too many years looking elsewhere for peace. But how thankful I am to know that He alone is my peace.

    blessings and love,
