The Peaceful Path

Happy New Year {finally}!  I am so excited to get back to my little cyber home on a regular basis this year {starting Monday}…but some “housekeeping” needed to be done first.  Among other things I have chosen to memorize scripture with the Siesta Scripture Memory Team on the Living Proof Ministries Blog. A measly little 8000 or so of us have committed to memorizing 2 verses or passages a month in 2011. We post our new scriptures on the 1st & 15th of each month, so today was the day for Verse #2…and here’s mine. It’s not too late to get started if you want to join in!

and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.

Isaiah 32:17 ESV

  • Righteousness – not man’s, but Christ’s, because only He could pay the price to achieve it. BONUS: ANYONE who chooses life in Him will get to share in that inheritance!
  • Peace, Quietness & Trust – knowing that no matter how harsh the environment {like a cold and cloudy winter’s day}…there can be peace and quietness of soul {like the hush of gently falling snow}, trusting that the Heavenly Father is in control and has a plan specifically for you, plans to give you hope and a future…
  • Forever – …and that future is guaranteed FOREVER. This earthly life we know now will be like the blink of an eye compared to an eternity of basking in the Glory of the Almighty!

Hide God’s word in your heart so you can recall it in any place at any time for blessed assurance…for peace, quietness and trust forever.

Have a Beautiful Day {especially if it’s Crazy}!
