Establish Peace


Isaiah 26:12 Lord, You establish peace for us. All that we have accomplished You have done for us.
Isn't it the eternal vicious cycle ... to sweat and struggle to keep up with the [fill-in-the-neighborses] and then, at the end of the day, fail to even feel good about what we have done? Is it ever enough? Will we ever attain that elusive peace?
Yes, we will. When we realize that it's never ours to establish. I don't know about you, but that's a relief and an encouragement to me.
For more encouraging Words this Wednesday, pop over to Amy Deanne's.

Wow, that is awesome! Doesn't it make you sad to think of those who don't know Peace? Without Christ, it is impossible. Thank you for the reminder. Merry CHRISTmas!

Great picture and verse! I started reading and one blog led to another, then suddenly I was popping back to my dashboard to put you on my "blogs I follow" list.

I will be back to enjoy another tour of your farm suite life.
