I Am At Peace When My Thoughts Are Fixed on God
But, what is it really saying? How can I practice what it says?
Perfect peace is a sense of complete well-being, with no worries, no fears, and having a feeling of safety and protection from my Higher Power.
I ask myself: Do I trust God? What does this trust feel and look like? Do I just do a lot of "lip service" saying I trust but then give in to worry and negative talk? No. Trusting in God means I can rest assured all my issues and needs are taken care of. it means asking for guidance and knowing I will be answered. Trusting means remaining steadfast and grounded IN SPITE of whatever may be happening around me. It's really knowing deep within that God Is and that I am taken care of. And, of course, this is a result of spending quiet time connecting within. Listening, being still.
Whenever fear and worry enter my mind, I remember this verse and repeat it over and over until I return to peace. I rest. I trust. Aaaaah. This is what having my thoughts fixed on God and Truth means. To really trust God is to experience perfect peace.
