His Peace

It isn’t easy to find peace in this world.  So many cares and so much pain & suffering. We are so busy taking care of areas of our life…children, spouse, aging parents, job, home, and the list goes on.

The world is revolving around us at a pace that leaves me spinning myself sometimes.

It is exhausting!  If we do not find a place to rest and find peace, we are easily overwhelmed and doomed to crash. No help to ourselves or those around us.

Where can we go to find solace…to renew?  The answer is simple really.

Jesus Himself knew the distractions and cares we would encounter. He gently calls us to come to Him…for rest, for peace.

JESUS says, “I leave you PEACE; MY PEACE I give you.  I do not give it to you as the world does.  So don’t let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”  John 14:27 (NCV)

On this Friday morning, I understand you have troubles and I am not belittling that.  You are exhausted from all you have to do.

You are amazing! You CARE so much and you DO so much.  Wouldn’t you like to share the load with the Author of your life? Let Him have it…spend time with Him and receive His amazing gift of peace.

Yeah, the world is still spinning around us and problems will continue to pop up, HOWEVER we can release that problem or person to Him and KNOW HE CARES and WILL HELP US THROUGH. Life seems a little brighter and it is that glimpse that renews us to face another moment.

I am praying for you.

Rest in Him

Jesus tells us to “Rest in Him”. I am such a planner and organizer…Can I rest…can I give my mind a break and stop anticipating what will happen? I am often trying to peer into the future and plan for every possibility.

When I do that, it seems I am ignoring the One who is constantly with me. When I am looking anxiously ahead, I am taking my focus off Him and trying to accomplish things in my own strength. I simply forget who is holding my hand…I forget Who sustains me.

He NEVER lets go of our hand...

He NEVER lets go of our hand…

Praying continually and asking His Spirit to take charge of the details of my day gives me a much more peaceful day. It may still be filled with plans that I have to make, but when I do not lose sight of the Lord’s Presence with me….I can safely “Rest in Him” all day!
