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—Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of [our] faith…Keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me.
Is. 26:3-4 ESV; Prov.3:5-6 ESV; Phil.4:6-7 NASB; Ps.19:14 ESV; Heb 12:1-2 NKJV; Ps.119:133 ESV
By the time this is posted I will be arriving, Lord willing, at my parents’ home in Alaska to help Mom take care of much business and make hard decisions and look forward in faith to what lies ahead for her…Much prayer and planning (and not a little anxiety) have gone into this trip already, but now our feet are on the ground and the walking out in faith of all God has in mind for my sister and I remains to be done. The above verses are both steadying truths and the prayers of my heart. May they be a strong support to you in whatever place these words find you today.
