Peace is a choice. It is all about your attitude no matter the circumstances. There are people that live what is considered a good life…they go to worship, they pray, they treat others well and they go about their daily business and life in a respectful manner. This is just a small taste of living what could be a Godly life! I know this because the above describes me for several years…I have read that this type of living can be described as living on the surface of the ocean. There are many days when things are calm and peaceful but sooner or later storms will come and the surface can be very turbulent during those times. Deep below the surface no matter what is occurring above there is serenity and Peace.
This is a calm that is known by some that have decided they are going to go diving in…this true sense of Peace that can be found in the most difficult circumstances of life is available to anyone willing to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present our requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
I pray we all will seek a faith deeper than the surface in this life and choose the sense of Peace that comes from knowing and having a relationship with Jesus. Amen.
I will be back tomorrow to continue the Fruit of the Spirit series to discuss…wait for it…Patience.
