And now for this week, in the midst of hockey, and ballet, and gymnastics, and hot lunch and recess duty ~ I am getting ready for a couple of HUGE HIGHLIGHTS for me! I can hardly wait!!
This Friday and Saturday (February 5th & 6th), I’ll be teaching at a Women’s Retreat on the topic of ‘Cultivating Contentment’. I’m so fired up! I have been studying Contentment for months and the insights I’ve been learning have been AMAZING!! I’ll share more after the retreat!! Woo Hoo!!!
And next week on Monday, Febraury 8th, our Magnificent Monday Bible Study starts again!! I LOVE Monday nights! Talk about an amazing group of women ~ and this season we’ll be focusing on the ‘renewing of our mind’! Yippee!!
But for today…can I just share something with you that has blessed me?!
“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You.”
So you could read it “You will keep in Shalom Shalom him (or her) whose mind is steadfast…”
So, if we firmly fix our focus on God, His goodness, His love and everything that HE IS, rather than focusing on our circumstances (or our thighs) :), than we will experience Shalom Shalom!!
I hope this blesses you as much as it has me!!! I could use some Shalom Shalom. Anyone else?? 🙂
Wonderful post. I am always blessed when I visit here. Hope you have a wonderful day.Hugs and blessings,andrea
Thank you, Cindy. I love that verse and I love your explanation of it! I know the Lord will bless and use you at the retreat this w/e – wish I could come! You are such a beautiful reflection of the Lord 🙂 Love, Jenny C.
Cindy, this post blesses my spirit and heart. I love the word Shalom too. So much so that I studied the word myself. I would love to share with you what I found that totally blew me away. I hope it blesses you further. xoxHebrew word – ShalomEnglish equivalent – PeaceMeaning contained within the Hebrew Letters/Pictographs(we have to know a little about the Hebrew language) Shalom – means to Destroy the authority that binds us to chaos.Amen sister. What a great revelation that was to me. It completely defined it for me.Shalom and Shalom!!!xoxJasmineFar Above Rubies
Yes, I love experiencing His shalom shalom. Thank you for sharing, Cindy, and I will be praying for YOU to know His peace as you go speak and as you PREPARE to go speak, peace for your family, and freedom from distraction or distress.
THanks for that! I do love studying God's word with Beth…God has given her such a unique understanding that it makes it all new again! I just popped over from Wylie's blog…fun to read your thoughts today, I will be back!
