My Only Real Peace
I know I take a risk every time I bare my soul through the good, bad, and ugly. Especially in the lowest moments many may be quick to ask “where is your faith now preacher?” To that I would respond “My faith is not about me having it all together or how much faith I can muster compared to others. My faith is about putting my trust in Jesus. Believing in a never changing God in the midst of my ever changing circumstances.
Yesterday was brutal and all day my strength was gone. Humanly speaking I couldn’t bare anymore and wondered how I could hold on any longer. Even now I’m aching, but I’m also feeling the peace of God. God’s peace can’t be explained or denied. I can’t tell you how many times He has restored the joy of my salvation.
Right now, I just want to praise you Jesus. You just keep taking me through the otherwise unbearable. You just keep giving me strength when my strength has long been gone. You keep giving me peace as I feel your presence in the midst of the storm. Thank you Jesus for sticking with me, working for me, and giving peace to me. Not just sometimes, but time and time again!
Jesus said, “ I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
