Perfectly Perfect

I’ve noticed in just the last few days that a few of the same words keep coming from my heart. Repetition is one of those things that I train my students in my AP Language course to pay attention to, “If it’s repeated, there’s a reason. Figure out the ‘so what? who cares?’ behind the repetition.”
Peace. Perfect. My Lord. Opportunity. Perfectly perfect.
As I read over my little list, I wondered what the bible has for “perfect peace”? And…what do you do when you want to know something? You might call your mom; you might ask a friend, but most likely, you Google it. My first go-to for things Bible is biblegateway.com, so I typed in ‘perfect peace’ in the keyword search. Isaiah 26:3 came up in the New Living Translation:
 3 You will keep in perfect peace
                                  all who trust in you,
                                  all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

I’m looking forward to God’s keeping me in his perfect peace today. I can’t describe the peace I feel other than “peaceful peace.” I know it’s redundant, but it’s the best description.

My musical gift this morning…Kari Jobe “The More I Seek You”:

I wanna sit at your feet
drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breath,
hear your heart beat

This love is so deep,
it’s more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it’s overwhelming

I wanna sit at your feet
drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breath,
hear your heart beat

This love is so deep,
it’s more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace…

The ‘so what? who cares?‘? The Lord is my God and he’s with me. I believe his promises, and I believe this is nothing.

I have it – perfect peaceful peace – and I want even more!
