Fruit of the Spirit – Sweet Blessings for the Sandwich Generation – Isaiah 26:3

by Kaye Swain

Peaceful Scriptures and Praise music relax my heart and my spiritPeace is the fruit of the Spirit that I have been focusing on this month – as in "Seek peace and pursue it," (I use that Scripture verse a LOT when babysitting grandchildren and they start squabbling. :) and as in "And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." I cling to that a LOT when juggling the various Sandwich Generation issues and they don't all fall into place the way I think they should! And as in Isaiah 26:3, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee." (KJV). I love this verse. It's such a good reminder to keep my mind focused on Him, whether through prayer, Bible study throughout the day, or listening to Christian music – especially in the car.

Speaking of Christian music, I heard two songs this week that so encouraged me and filled me with a calming peace during some times when I was really wrestling with frustration and worry. I pray their words and Scriptures of encouragement will lift your spirits as well:

Phillips, Craig & Dean – Great I Am

Casting Crowns, Voice of Truth

My policy when driving in my car – with AND without my grandkids – is to listen to Christian music, classical music, or uplifting stories (or school memory work for them). These two were such a sweet blessing, I've added them to my playlist. As the Casting Crowns song puts it, "I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of Truth " How about you? What Christian songs bring a sense of peace to your heart?

Spiritual Sundays are full of encouraging Bible verses and delightful praise and worship hymn songs and music

The Sandwich Generation can find sweet words of encouragement in the Women helping Women linkup
