This poem is based on Isaiah 26:3. I have prayed that verse many times over myself at night before shutting my eyes to sleep and as I read that verse this morning I wondered for the first time just what the original words for “perfect peace” were. An interlinear word search showed me that both words mean the same, or as we would say “shalom shalom” the highest peace possible. What a blessed way to sleep at night!
Just as these beautiful metal horse sculptures pictured above are unique creations of art, created by Dixie Jewett of Dayton,OR thru her love of horses and her skill in welding, so are we all works of art, created and designed by God.
Each of us are unique. Masterpieces of our Creator who formed us in love, to reflect and shine His workmanship to the world around us.
Ephesians 2:10 Amplified Bible (AMP)
For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].
