Isaiah 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
Life is one roller coaster ride. There are days of celebration and rejoicing and the next thing we know we find ourselves in deep despair wondering how we ever got into this mess. But the greatest consolation is that, Whether we are on the mountain top or in the valley our God Shepherd is always by our side. And if our mind is stayed on our God we will be at peace no matter what we face. Paul beautifully sums it up in Philippians 4:12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
What can you recommend for someone who is interested in philosophy but does not know how or where to start?
