Hello everyone...I hope you're having a nice day. With all that is taking place right now in this world, I thought that I'd stop by for a moment and share a word of encouragement with you today...something that can remind us that God is with us, while facing these troublesome times.
You know...I don't know about you; but I could use an extra dose of peace in my day. With all that goes on around us...and even in our own personal lives, we can find ourselves struggling to remain above the troubled waters.
As I was sitting here this morning...looking out onto another new day, God began to take me back to a very familiar Bible verse in John 14:27, which reads... "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
During these times we're facing, we can find ourselves falling prey to an anxious spirit...one that takes us from one worrisome thought to another; but God is reminding us today that we don't have to face these troublesome times alone; for He is offering us a perfect peace that can help us to rest in Him.
You know...I'm finding more and more that all we need to do is nestle into the loving hands of God and let His presence surround us...with not only peace, but also safety. When we are sheltered in His loving presence; then this perfect peace He's offering us...begins to shower down upon us, which can make every troubled moment around us seem more distant from us.
No matter what may be troubling you right now...why not take hold of the gift of God's perfect peace and allow His spirit to overshadow you with a peace that can calm any raging storm that may be surrounding you at this time. You know...this world can make us feel as if we are falling into a pit of destruction; but when we choose to accept the gift of God's perfect peace, I have come to see that these troublesome times seem to melt away; so, let go of what's troubling you...lay back and let the droplets of God's perfect peace shower down around you...Amen!
Have a very blessed day and remember that God's got you...and even this world we live in! God bless you so much!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
