What do you think about peace , my friend asked
As we ate lunch together , “ Peace “ I said puzzled
I’m not sure —— why do you ask ? He answered,
Well, as you jiggled your foot during the service , i
Wondered if you are agitated about something to
Those who love ❤️ Him ? That day some years ago ,
I was a bit hurt by my friends question , but it started
Me on a journey , I began exploring the Bible to see how
God’s people embraced this gift of well- being , of peace ,
Even in the midst of hardship , As I read Paul’s letter to the
Colossians , I chewed over the apostles commands to let peace
Of Christ rule in their hearts .
Paul was writing to a church he never visited but had heard about
From from his friends Epaphras , He was concerned that as they
Encountered false teachings , they were losing the peace of Christ .
But instead of admonished them , Paul encouraging them to trust
Jesus , who would give them assurance and hope .
We all will encounter times when we can choose to embrace
Or refuse the rule of Christ of peace in our hearts , As we turn
To Him , asking Jesus to dwell in us . He will gently release us
From the anxiety and cares that weigh us down . As we seek His
Peace , we trust that He will meet us with His love ❤️
What situation or relationship weigh heavy on your
Mind and heart ❤️
How can you ask Jesus to bring you peace ?
Jesus we give you peace that passes all understanding
Help me embrace Your peace in every area of my life ❤️❤️
