Perfectly Peaceful Family

by Pastor Ken

You will keep whoever’s mind is steadfast in perfect peace because he trusts in you.

Isaiah 26:3

During a recent stay in Costa Rica, a family invited us to lunch after the church worship.

The smiles, the welcoming comments, and the well-prepared delicious meals made us feel at home.

Afterward, we attended a church youth concert with worshipful songs that lifted us up.

In the evening, we walked around a newly opened department store. There we saw two adult daughters, holding hands with their mom and dad. Sometimes they danced with background music.

We went into a restaurant to eat, where we discovered the same family of four sitting in front of us.

Their joy – the bonding, the pure trust, and caring love – was lovely. The family shined with peace from God.

I told them, “It is a beautiful picture! Two beautiful daughters and Mom and Dad.”

They beamed and, at their request, I took a picture of them.

Sitting in the car on the way back home, my heart was full of happiness.

When you and your loved ones have Jesus in their hearts, the perfect peace that results will not only make you happy, but it will make other people happy as well.

Today, I pray that God will give you the same peace so you and your family may also experience a perfect peace only He can give.


Dear God,
Please fill me with Your perfect peace.
You are the source of all my happiness.
In Jesus’ peaceful name I pray, Amen.
