He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord!

- Isaiah 26:3

Turn your thoughts to the Lord often!

Training our thoughts can be tough, since it is one of the most common places Satan likes to attack. Even though this is challenging, the positive outcome is worth it!

The more you train your thoughts on the Lord, the more peace you will have. When you think upon the Lord and His goodness, the affections of your heart will also begin to turn towards Him.

Whenever you experience something good, thank the Lord for it.

Even the small, everyday things of life are worth thanking Him for. Think of the Lord when you see the sunset and sunrise. Think of the Lord when you see the flowers in bloom that He sends for you every spring season. Think of and thank the Lord for each meal and for His provision of a house. Think of and thank the Lord for the joy you receive from the friends and family He’s placed in your life.

Intentionally placing little reminders around your house and living space can also help. Write scriptures on sticky notes and place them on your mirror, in the car, or at your desk! Play worship music in the background as you cook meals or work on your daily chores.

Even unpleasant and painful moments of our day can point our attention back to our Savior, reminding us of how much we need Him.

Today, how can you be intentional in turning your thoughts towards God more? What are some creative ways you can do this?

The more we are able to turn our thoughts to the Lord, the more we will become aware of His presence and how close He really is to us, enabling us to experience His perfect peace!  

With Love,
Sarah Sherstad

I love this scripture! Our world appears to be turning upside down, inside out, and backward. The Peace Of God can and does keep us above the storms we are experiencing. I try always to thank Him in and through ALL circumstances and for every good thing. He is Good regardless… and He will protect, comfort, guide and hide us under the shadow of His wings. Thank you for this reminder to be ever thankful and to say so. Thank you so very much! The Peace of God be with you all, as you strive to keep your focus on Him.

I try to thank the Lord for all the little things instead of just all the big things. I haven’t been writing scriptures on sticky notes, but will now do this to remind me to thank him more. Thank you for the encouraging devotionals.
