The Peace of a Mind Focused on Christ

As a young African-American slave girl, Margaret Browne, was taken from her family and sold to an evil slave master. An account in her diary tells of being taken to the whipping post for breaking a china dish in her master’s house.

The motion or exertion of being pulled along over the ground, restored me to full consciousness. With a haggard eye, I looked up to the still blue heaven, where the holy stars yet held their silent vigil; and the serene moon moved on in her starry track, never once heeding the dire cruelty, over which her pale beam shed its friendly light. “Oh,” thought I, “is there no mercy throned on high? Are there no spirits in earth, air, or sky, to lend me their gracious influence? Does God look down with kindness upon injustice like this?” … These wild, rebellious thoughts only crossed my mind; they did not linger there. No, like the breath-stain upon the polished surface of the mirror, they only soiled for a moment the shining faith which in my soul reflected the perfect goodness of that God who never forgets the humblest of His children, and who makes no distinction of color or race … ’Twas faith alone that sustained me.…

I saw Him nailed to the cross, spit upon, vilified and abused, with the thorny crown pressed upon His brow … I could have shouted, Great is Jesus of Nazareth!! … These thoughts had power to cheer; and, fortified by faith and religion, the trial seemed to me easy to bear.… In this state of mind, with a moveless eye I looked upon the whipping-post, which loomed up before me like an ogre …

A mind focused on Christ brings peace in the most trying circumstances. Take time to reflect on Christ’s sufferings and resurrection today.

You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.

Isaiah 26:3
