“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”
It might already be hard to remember a few weeks ago when we had the holiday break and there were a few days of peace and quiet. And already we are scrambling around trying to get our goals and objectives off the ground to make this first month a time of momentum gains. And, this is the best month of the year to find alignment among the team by sharing and talking about the goals that cross our different departments or functions. Before the year gets too far away from us, let’s schedule that time of alignment. That work will be more than worth it!
Just as we create peace and harmony in the workplace by being ones who work for alignment, sharing and transparency, we can call on God for that same peace and harmony in our lives. We are given the promise that the more we trust upon the Lord and fix our thoughts on Him, the more we can expect not just peace, but perfect peace. And, it well might be that we can diagnose our problems of consternation and uneasiness in that we have our thoughts someplace else or we are leaning too much on ourselves to make our way. The other side of peace and harmony is certainly no fun at all.
