Peace Peace

In preparing for last nights Bible Study, while also dealing with my own spiritual battles, I decided that the topic would be peace. You know that priceless entity that you can’t buy, drink, or sex into existence. I know. I’ve tried. I’ve failed. After receiving the topic, I received this scripture.

Isaiah 26:3 (King James Version)
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.

After that I decided that I wanted to get a little deep and find the definition for the words perfect and peace. I mean, I already knew that usually the word perfect in the Bible means complete, but I was curious so I opened E-sword and then went to the Bible with numerical references to the original Hebrew. Yeah y’all SLC was trying to get super deep for this study. Well what a surprise when I found that the words in Hebrew were the same. They both meant completeness, soundness, welfare, and safety. It was originally written "keep in peace peace". I was stumped. But then I thought about the hell I’ve been through and realized that although as a Christian I have peace all the time, God loves me, Jesus loves me, I’m going to Heaven, I love the Lawd He heard my cry, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on,.........

All that religion isn’t enough. I’ve been looking for more than that common peace, but I been looking for the type of peace that enables me to stop feeling anxiety about the things I cannot control. I’ve been looking for that type of peace that confuses people that think I should be crazier than I am. I’ve been looking for that protective force field of peace that refuses to let any thoughts permeate my mind that are not related to the goal of………..peace.

I’m going to have peace. Well actually, I’m going to have peace peace. A double scoop of peace. I’m going to focus on what God can do, not on what I can’t do. I’m going to focus on the most stable Being I have ever had the pleasure of being in a relationship with.

Lin, if you’re reading this, I’m going to have that peace peace that enables me to fight off my anxiety attacks that you wrote about so well I though you had peeked into my mind.

Miz, I’m looking for the type of peace peace that……..Does The Body Good.

Pray for me.
Pray for Peace.
Peace Peace

You promised if I keep my mind on You,
You'd keep me in perfect peace

With a sincere heart if I called upon Your name
You'd never turn away from me

Said you'd give me everything I need

I came for deliverance
Deliverance I'll receive
You said You'd deliver me
And that's what I believe
