I have peace.
In this world with no peace, with stress, with worries, with sickness, death, pain, crimes, hate, disasters, and many more afflicting conditions, I can honestly say I have peace. Although my two girls are sick, and I have not made dinner yet, I'm tired and I haven't cleaned my house today. I have peace. A true, quiet, calming, gentle spirit that surrounds my heart and mind. I thank God for this peace, for I had lost it for a time, but it has returned to my life. It sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of life. In all the things I need to do or want to do, in all my projects, in all my worries. But I have prayed to receive this peace again, and alas it has come. God has listened to my prayers. Thank you God. Please help me to continue doing my part, I know you always do yours.
"Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that excels all thoughts will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus."
~ Philippians 4:6,7
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life nor angels nor governments nor things now here nor things to come nor powers nor height nor depth nor any other creation will be able to separate us from God's love that is in Jesus Christ our Lord."
~ Romans 8:38,39
