Reading yesterday morning, I came across another verse that just kind of jumped off the page at me. I love it when that happens!
"A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones." ~ Proverbs 14:30
When my heart is at peace ~ I am content with where God has placed me. I am resting in His perfect love and guidance. I am trusting, leaning on Him and displaying faith in Him by not fretting.
I love this visual picture of my heart being at peace bringing life to the rest of my body. Isn't it true that when our hearts are right with God ~ we are at peace?
I like the picture of contentment. If envy causes such disturbance in our lives, contentment brings such peace. What a gift.
The Hebrew word used in this verse means calmness and composure. Hmmm, think about that.
Today, and every day, may I have a heart of peace. A calm and composed heart trusting my Savior.
