Thankful for Perfect Peace

Thankful Thursday

Isaiah_26-3_yellow_sunflower_square_esize

I know I’ve shared this verse with you several times before but it has so much truth packed into just a few words that it is worth repeating.

I’ll always be thankful that God answered the cry of my heart one day with this particular Bible passage. The New King James Version was my Bible of choice at the time, so that translation of this verse is dear to me:

You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You. —Isaiah 26:3

I love the use of the word stayed in this passage! I am so thankful that God brings this and other passages to mind when I need them the most but I also keep this verse visible on the home page of my cell phone and written on cards posted in various places around the house.

How about you, Beloved? What Scripture passages spring to your mind when you’re grappling with tough situations? Please share!

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.

  1. 2 Tim 1:7, For we have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
    AMEN

    • Susan, this is another of those posts that I scheduled ahead of time only to realize that God mainly meant this for me right now. Oh, and thank you for reminding us about 2 Tim 1:7 — a powerful passage!

So what do you think?
