Word Filled Wednesday (UPDATED)

(Photo courtesy of Webshots)
Does this Wednesday find you in need of some peace? This verse has become one of my all time favorites. On those days when life is anything but peaceful, take a few moments to quiet your heart before Him and claim this promise. You will find no greater source. I love the words to this beautiful song that seem to echo the message of this verse...

In the Presence of Jehovah
In and out of situations
that tug of war at me
All day long I struggle
for the answers that I need
But when I come into His presence
All my questions become clear
And in that sacred moment
No doubts can interfere

In the presence of Jehovah
God Almighty, Prince of Peace
Troubles vanish, hearts are mended
In the presence of the King

Through His love the Lord provided
A place for us to rest
A place to find the answers
In our hour of distress
Now there's never any reason
For you to give up in despair
Just slip away and breathe His name
You will surely find Him there

In the presence of Jehovah
God Almighty, Prince of Peace
Troubles vanish, hearts are mended
In the presence of the King

May your day be blessed!

I was at my visiting a friend of mine yesterday and the first thing she "threw" at me was the book: My Utmost For His Highest by Oawald Chambers. (I own this little devotional myself but, rarely crack it open unlike her.)Although, yesterday was the 17th she quickly went to the past date of Feb 11th which began with this very same scripture!

It was a beautiful devotion attached to Isaiah 26:3

Have a beautiful day.
In Him :O)

oops... sorry for the "mix-up" in my words in the previous comment...
If I would just 'edit' myself before I click "publish" then I just might not have this problem, lol! ((blush blush))

My sweet sister and friend, I appreciate this post so much and I appreciate YOU praying for me and leaving words of comfort at my blog for my healing. I'm almost there...

I meditated on this Scripture amongst many during the days I've been sick. Jesus' peace is truly with me.

Love you.

I love this verse... it is one I memorized years ago, but I always remember it when I need peace, isn't God's Word so good that way, it comes back when we need it!

And I love that picture... such a peaceful place.

Blessings!
