Shalom

Shalom.

Wholeness.

Peace that passes understanding.

That is what the Lord has been teaching me to seek. I have had over a month now in my new space. We left Massachusetts in December before Christmas. We spent nearly a month in California kicking back with family and relaxing after our frantic year of preparing a house for the market and selling it. We have been here in Lexington since the beginning of January.

We are still waiting on many things. My husband's job. Our new home search. Finding a home church. My application into the doctoral studies I moved here to be able to pursue. My "career" here besides wife and mother.

We have been blessed with many things I did not expect so soon. Great neighbors. Friends for the kids. Women I can call my friends. Quality time with my husband.

I am still waiting, but I am reaching deep for the shalom that God has promised and trust that He will reveal new things to me each day.

Blogger Searching for the Church said...

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." (Isa. 26:3)

This is my life verse. But what is "keeping our mind on him"? I think it is "prayer without ceasing."

What is prayer without ceasing?

It is either a pithy hyperbole for "pray alot," or it is an impossible injunction to "talk to God without ceasing," or else prayer is something other than I usually think.

I did not even have a clue before I read Way of the Pilgrim, the Russian classic. I commend it to you on your search.
