Hey Everyone! How are you feeling right now? Most of us have experienced so much over the past few months and have heard so much NEWS! I remember back in March when the kids were out and I was teaching them from home and my husband’s job had and still has him working remotely, I really didn’t know what was going on, but I knew things were changing and we had to learn how to adjust, but also rely on God daily for strength and guidance. Fast forward months later, we are constantly bombarded with some type of news. We are busy in our homes cooking, cleaning, helping with virtual learning and the list goes on and on, but guess what you can still have PEACE in a Pandemic situation! The peace I want to talk a little about is not based on what is going on around you and how you feel or what he or she has said about you. This peace comes only from God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. KJV
And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours]. Amplified
What is Peace? Peace can be described as freedom from some type of disturbance or state of tranquility. When you are living for God and have a relationship, it does not mean that you are not affected in any way by what is going on in the world, but it does mean that in the midst of it, you have hope and a foundation. The Bible talks about how we should cast our cares on God because He cares for us. It is a fact that things will happen in life, but we were never told to worry.
This peace cannot be understood by everyone. The scripture says that it pass understanding and that it will guard our hearts and minds. That’s the kind of peace I want. I am covered and protected. Doing the last few months, I have had those moments where I can almost feel the pressure of the times we are in, but at those moments the Word of God has to be my place of peace and rest. Once I begin to remind myself of what the Bible says, I can daily live in Peace!! It is not God’s will for you to have sleepless nights and you are pulling your hair out trying to figure out how you will make it. He desires for us to trust Him. Will there be moments? Yes. We all have them, but we cannot stay there. Some days for me seem kind of hectic at times (wife, mother, working a business from home, doing homework with kids,etc..). In the midst of all the hats we where, there still should be a PEACE that you possess and that can only come from God.
I encourage you today to take a moment and ask God for his peace. No matter how your family situation maybe or how crazy life may seems, there is peace that passeth understanding. Don’t let the things of this world rob you of your peach and rest that you can experience. Don’t forget to Take it ONE DAY AT A TIME and continue to understand that Peace can be your portion!
