I Have Peace…

I have PEACE.  Not because I received something that I have prayed and believed God for.  Not because I got an extra thousand dollars in the mail.  Not because my kids have been on their absolute best behavior.  And not because my hubby gave me the bag, new phone and mini Ipad that I have been wanting~believe me all these things would be great for me to have and I can even see myself doing my happy dance, big belly and all, if I were to receive any one of these things…

But these aren’t the things that have brought me peace, a peace that I have never felt before.  What/Who has brought me peace is God and His presence.  Not the type of presence that is overwhelming and makes me jump and run but the type of presence that is subtle yet strong.  The type of presence that is assuring and that keeps you in a calm place even when there might be a thunderstorm going on all around you.  That’s the type of peace that I have been experiencing…This is the peace that I hope that you can experience too, all the time, everyday.

The peace that tells you that all is well even when the physical doesn’t match up.  The type of peace that will cause you to pray a silent prayer that is from so deep within that it’s even difficult to speak it into words.  The kind of peace that reminds you to confess your desired results instead of confessing the current.  This is the type of peace that I have been experiencing.  I pray that you experience God’s peace too…

Hebrews 13:20, 21~Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Philipians 4:7~And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

John 16:33~I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In these world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world.
