I’ve really been spending a lot of time searching my heart for what God really wants of my life. This has really caused me some restless nights and a lack of peace. I have followed through with leaving my career as an educator, knowing He was very clearly speaking to me about this. As for what’s next…I am still praying on that. I know he will make it very clear when He’s ready and not until He’s ready. I love you all and covet (I know I’m breaking one of the Commandments but I think He really understands this) your comments and prayers. I am so blessed by you.In several of the churches I attended as a child (We moved a LOT!) the pastor would use the words of Philippians 4:7 (And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.) as a benediction. To this day, when I hear these words an indescribable blanket of peace settles over me. Paul uses these words to describe the blessing we receive when we rejoice in the Lord, are gentle in our relationships, give our worries to the Lord, pray and give thanks for everything. When we obey and give in, through, and too His Name, peace is indeed ours.
Ah, Lord, God, let the peace that escapes our understanding invade our lives today. Let us see it, feel it, and show it to the world around us. Make it so!
