True serenity is not happenstance, as if found in some random place or elusive state of mind; rather, it is constant, emanating from an abiding landscape within, of a soul kept in perfect peace through Christ.
Last Fall, Jim and I were in Cabo San Lucas for his son’s destination wedding. The tranquil setting above was lovely, especially at dusk. This photo is one of my favorites and almost makes me want to take up sailing.
We both needed a break from all the medical drama last year. Thankfully, God protected and enabled both of us to attend, and we had an enjoyable time. We could not have done so, without His help.
Christ alone calms the storms we face and brings us an inner peace and serenity that nothing else can.
“You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on You,
because he trusts in You.”
Isaiah 26:3 ESV
“By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.”
1 John 4:13-15 NASB
