The new Dear Mushka Resolved Necklace is based on Isaiah 26:3 which is what I consider to be my own life verse, if I had to choose just one. It’s the verse that I have meditated on the most and it has been the biggest comfort to me in my life.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you.
I first heard this verse when I was still in college and had no context, I didn’t know how to study scripture. But when I first heard it, I immediately praised God for the truth. I realized that my brain is always going a million miles an hour and I long for peace.
The loud noises, the conflict and chaos shows that the world is broken and all I long for is peace. This world will not be peaceful until Christ comes again, but our minds can find peace and rest through Him now.
Through Jesus we can have that peace even when everything around us is chaotic.
So the Resolved Necklace builds on this idea and serves as a reminder for this concept. The gold chain and pendant that hangs around your neck represents your mind that is always looking around towards your past, towards things you wish you had or hadn’t done. Or when we look at others and constantly compare ourselves - it shows our minds being pulled in different directions.
But when we wrap our minds around the stone (around God) we find peace.
This necklace hangs a little shorter on a 16” chain. It sits right above my shirt line but if you’d like to make it a little longer you’re always welcome to add a chain extender.
The pendant is fitted with a beautiful moonstone - they remind me of an opal but are a little more grey than white. The edges of this stone are very reflective and when they catch the light you see little rainbows! So stunning!
It has taken me years to design a piece for this verse because it has meant so much to me. I’m praying over this piece and over all of you. I hope through it you are able to find peace and joy.
