My Mantra

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3
I have memorized many quotes from the Bible and A Course in Miracles as part of my inner tool box I reach out to for daily, moment to moment remembrance of Love and especially when I face challenges.
This one in particular is like a mantra for me. In just one sentence it states so much. As I say or think each portion, I contemplate on its meaning, feeling and, with faith, I rest on the promise that is there for me....and all of us.
"You" (meaning God) "keep him" (me, you) "in perfect peace,"
I know that I want to be in perfect peace as much as possible, and it is possible. How?
"whose mind is stayed on You,". I can choose to keep my thoughts on God, Who loves me, is always with me and is changeless.
"because he trusts in You." Obviously, I need to have a relationship and connection with this Divine Being in order for me to place my trust in It. And that trust is cultivated through prayer, reading and by just asking! It is God's Will for us to be at peace and we can find it in Him.
