I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
John 14:27 NLT
This week has been very interesting and I’ve experienced the verse above in a practical way. Now I do not, believe in coincidences; when a series of seemingly unrelated events begin to take place I know the Lord is trying to tell me something.
First of all, I got a mail from Stacey Mayo telling me about the stillness experiment – taking a few minutes every hour of each day just to be still. Then I stumbled unto the BlogBlast for Peace meme. So many things happened and I needed to find for myself, a definition of peace.
At the end of the day, I came back to the word of God and the definition above was the most accurate for me. I discovered that there had to be a storm in order to fully appreciate God’s peace.
So this week, I’m thankful for:
- Jesus Christ who is the Prince of Peace.
- The Word of God which has a message for every situation of my life.
- The storms I go through in life – but for them I would not know what it meant to experience true peace.
- The peace of God which defies logic…I feel it literally and it is the sort that can only come from the Lord.
I’m full of praise this week because I feel better than i did last week! Thank you all for your kind words last week – I felt your love and it is a blessing.
