Tonight, I was patting baby to sleep and I decided to pray while he was deciding he wanted to stay awake for a long time.

I was thinking of all the things going on in  the world. Horrible things. Evil things. Heartbreaking things.

I thought about things in the US that could very personally affect us and all citizens.

I thought of sad horrible stories friends have shared with me.

It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed by everything. It’s easy to be scared. It’s easy to be angry.

I know that I do not function well when I let fear and worry overwhelm me.

While I patted baby, I thought what do I need Lord? What do I need to pray for?

Then one of my favorite verses came to mind.

Isaiah 26:3, 4

You will keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on You,
Because he trusts in You.

Trust in the Lord forever,
For in the Lord,  Jehovah is everlasting strength.

    Now THAT was perfect – and just what I also needed.

  2. Sally Martin

    Amen! That verse comes to my mind often.

  3. Laura

    Yea and amen! We have good friends serving the Lord in Odessa, Ukraine right now. Life is so fragile and war-torn for them. Thank you for sharing this verse and reminding me that rather than worry, I need to turn my thoughts to His Word.
