Peace of mind and heart doodles

Peace is a gift.  This past week my heart has been in a constant state of concern and my mind has had little rest. This past Sunday I read this verse and I have went back to it again and again.

" I am leaving you with a gift- peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled of afraid.," John 14:27

 Doodles,tea and me~ 

I am still asking the Lord how to apply this for me right now in the situation I am finding myself in. I am confident that this gift of peace of mind and heart is for me, and IS for right now.  Last night as I lay in bed contemplating this verse I considered how peace comes by believing the truth. The truth is: "My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Ps. 73:26 God, my Father and creator, my friend and wisdom is also my strength and he has provided for me everything I need to release my true concerns to him so that I can receive His gift of peace that is so desperately needed. This world I live in and my own thoughts and ideas are not enough to reslove my issues and bring about true peace to my mind and heart. Wisdom calls out to me to hand over my unending thoughts and take the gift of peace of mind and heart.

If any of you can relate I would love to hear ~ or hit helpful in the reactions below. Peace to each of you today.

This is something I'm practicing in my world lately, too. I say practicing because it is just like everything else that a person wants to be a habit in her life - it takes focus. Be encouraged, sister. You're leaning into Him and not your own understanding. This scripture has been a reminder of his promise about peace.

Isaiah 26:3 - You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
