Perfect Peace

Yesterday I spoke to a group of college students in a university class.  The topic was a business-related one:  how to build and maintain your own personal brand.  I relayed how that large companies depend on having brands that are consistent with their mission and purpose.  Similarly, we as employees are ambassadors of not only a company’s brand, but also our own personal brand.

What moved me was afterwards, a young lady came up to me with tears in her eyes.  She was thanking me for speaking success into her life.  She said “I really needed this.  I’ve had some crazy stuff happen in my life lately.”

We need peace in our lives.  We crave it.  Even if we are having an overall positive life experience, we as humans are more comfortable and free when we have internal peace.

Isaiah 26:3 says “You will keep him [her] in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You; because he [she] trusts in You.”

I speak this peace into your life today.  It applies to you because this scripture applies to anyone who will hear or read it.  As you go through your life today and this evening, stay in peace.  Live in this peace.  It is yours.  It comes through a trust in the God who backs it up.  It stays by your mind staying on God.  Not on the things that are troubling you, which are fleeting and temporary.  Today is your day to live in this peace.
