I am Staying

"You keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You."
Isaiah 26:3

I read this verse, among other, this week as I was reading through my Daily Light passages.
There are many ways to read through God's Word, this is one of my favorites.
Far too often my mind is stayed on the worries of the world. Are my kids safe? Do I have to get up today and get moving? Will the snow ever stop? My Savior continues to remind me to keep my heart, mind and soul stayed firmly on him and the precious Word of God.
Today I am making it my goal to rest my mind on the Word of God,upholding and sustaining me so I may have perfect peace.

Stayed=to rest on (something, as a foundation or base) for support. Dictionary.com

Hebrew for stayed

1) to lean, lay, rest, support, put, uphold, lean upon
2) to support, uphold, sustain
b) (Niphal) to support or brace oneself

This verse is beautiful...perfect peace. What a blessing that as Christians we can experience that! Isaiah is all so beautiful...my favorite book of the bible!
