Keep Your Mind on God

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee.
– Isaiah 26:3

If your mind is filled with defeat thoughts, fear thoughts, resentment thoughts, you are bound to be in a state of mental unrest, even turmoil, and of course there can be no inner peace. This passage advises you to practice thinking about God, to keep your mind "stayed" or fixed not upon your troubles but upon God. Keep your mind on God for as many minutes during the day as possible. This may be difficult at first. Practice will make it easier.

please pray that my 81 year-old sister Grace who just lost her husband in April will find peace and happiness in her life as she struggles with loneliness(she lives in another state than I do that is several thousand miles always, and her only child travels with her job and cannot be with her very often) - thank you

please pray that I can get through the coming up first anniversary of my husband's death. We were married 48 years.

I lost my mom in December 2012. I can understand only too well what you are going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Someone out there is thinking about you...

Thank you!

where can i get a copy of his book please?

Dr. Peale published many books. Click the Shop link in the upper right corner of this page and do a search on his name, and you'll see some of his titles (note: many of the ones listed will be audio books, not print). Other of Dr. Peale's books are available from other sources, too, like Amazon: http://dld.bz/bP9hF -- and from used book stores, both online and walk-in stores.

Years ago I discovered some of Dr. Norman Vincent Peales's excerpts which make such excellent devotional lessons for church club meetings. They always stressed being positive, even though they were from different works of his. I'm wondering if you have any collection that I can purchase with these excerpts. The ones that I happened to print include: How To Build Friendships, Improve Your Prayer Life, A Wonderfl New Year, and When Faced With Grief. They usually had numbered steps, suggestions, etc. I hope you have such a collection available.

Hi Mazie. Dr. Peale published many books, but I don't know of one that fits your description precisely. Click the Shop link in the upper right corner of this page and do a search on his name, and you'll see some of his titles (note: many of the ones listed will be audio books, not print). Other of Dr. Peale's books are available from other sources, too, like Amazon: http://dld.bz/bP9hF -- and from used book stores, both online and walk-in stores.
