Perfect Peace

Perfect Peace

Isaiah 26:3
The LORD gives perfect peace to those whose faith is firm.

Amen to this! Your obedience to God by having faith in Him, no matter what your circumstances, will be rewarded. He knows our hearts and loves when we trust Him completely.

Have a great day.

God’s Way is Perfect

2 Samuel 22:31
God’s way is perfect. All the LORD’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.

God's Way is Perfect

Bigger than Any Box

‘We have a very big God. He is bigger than anything in our past, anything in the future, and bigger than any box.’
-Bob & Emilie Barnes


My wife and I read this in our devotions book the other night. It was a great reminder.

I don’t know about you, but I have put God in a box so many times in my life. Long ago and in recent times, too. It can be just about anything.

‘Oh, I doubt that this will ever happen.’

‘There’s no way that could change or improve.’

‘What’s the point of doing x, y, z…’

You get the point. We all do it. But if you think about it for a minute, there’s no reason to!

After all, we have  a very big God and it doesn’t take me more than a few seconds (when I do stop to think about it) to realize all the things He has done for me and is doing for me in my life right now. Yet there I am, still putting Him in a box at times, limiting my thoughts to…well…my thoughts.

That’s the key part, right there. He has bigger thoughts, bigger ways, bigger plans than anything we can dream up – and certainly bigger than anything we think can’t happen.

Isaiah 55:8-9
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

So, what about you? Are you putting God in a box in your life? Try tossing the box out and just letting Him do what He does. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the end result. 🙂

Have a great day.


One of my favorite 80’s songs right here…and recently, I’ve realized that the lyrics to it are essentially a running prayer throughout the entire song. The band has described it as such in interviews as well.

So cool. (Kyrie eleison = LORD have mercy)

Kyrie eleison down the road that I must travel.
Kyrie elesion through the darkness of the night.
Kyrie eleison where I’m going, will You follow?
Kyrie eleison on a highway in the light.
