Thank you all for your prayers & kind comments. I will try to return to my topics list soon, but for now I want to say thank you for my family and I. If you have a relationship Christ, then I don't need to tell you that there are times when it is not well with our circumstances, but when we turn to Christ, he offers us supernatural peace, where otherwise there could be no peace. John 14:27 " Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." Trying to find peace through your own means is futile. I have tried and I cannot manufacture real peace. Real peace in spite of turmoil can only be found in one place! Romans 15:13 " May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Sometimes, I fail to remember that no matter what happens this life isn't where my hope, peace. and joy are found! I have a hope that is eternal. and I need daily sometimes hourly reminders of the overflowing hope! I have seen this verse in Romans through the years, but it has never grabbed me like today! Can I ask you, has there been a moment or time when peace seemed impossible, and God provided the peace you needed? God brought his peace despite the "what if's" or the question of what the future could hold, If I have learned anything about life, it is that situations can change in a snap, and nothing is sure, other than hope in Christ. You can be flying high one moment, and the next the rug is pulled out from under you. Any one out there know what I mean? So of these two verses, does one capture you more than the other? Our President's slogan,(this is not a complaint, just historic fact), in his campaign was Yes, we can. In the case of peace beyond life's twists and turns, the reality is, we can't, but He(God through The Holy Spirit can be our peace! Thank you lifting me and my family in prayer. I will inform you as I can. Please keep praying!
