Complete Peace

Philippians 4:7 Then God’s shalom, passing all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with the Messiah Yeshua.

God’s peace, which surpasses all understanding will guard my heart and mind in safety when I am in union with Christ.

completepeaceFor the most part, I feel like I have peace in my life.  My mind immediately goes to the death of my mother and the peace that I had as God walked me through that time.  It still amazes me the peace that surrounded me.

Yet, I realize I don’t let God guard every area of my life and mind.  There are areas that I do not have peace.  Sometimes, I don’t realize that there is not peace in an area until it is pointed out to me by someone else or it is staring me in the face as I help someone else in a similar area and I recognize myself in their responses.  I am so used to my “normal”, I don’t see the lack of peace.

Prayer: Lord reveal to me the areas in my life where I do not have Your complete peace.  Help me to grow Your peace in my life.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
