11. Perfect Peace

While I'm Waiting
by John Waller



Thou will keep me
In perfect peace when
my mind is stayed on you

Peace flowing like a river
Peace never to be stolen
Peace that you give
is not of this world
my mind is stayed on you

John Waller (Isaiah 26:3) © 2009 Travelin' Zoo Music (ASCAP) (admin. by EMI CMG Publishing)

Behind the Song:
"Let's face it, it's easy to become overwhelmed at times with worries about the future. I wrote this song during one of those times when all the 'what ifs' really started to play on my mind. But the Lord brought the scripture to my mind that says, "Thou will keep him in "Perfect Peace" whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you." That was all I had. I locked my focus on Him. That was my antidote for worry, fear and anxiety." - John Waller


These words have resonated over and over in my heart and mind this week. God's peace is a blessing and a gift to me. Check out this artist. His lyrics are strong and his voice is a treat. If you have watched the movie, Fireproof, you have heard his song, "While I'm Waiting."

Wish I could wrap my arms around you, my blog friend, but wrapping my prayers will have to do. What a sweet, beautiful name...I am so sorry for your loss.
