Peace, or lack there of


Lately I have been struggling to find peace.  I have been trying to figure things out on my own.  I have been trying to make my own plans and do what I think is best.  This, as I am sure you all know, is a terrible idea.  It leads to sleepless night, stressful days, all around unhappiness, fear, and yes, lack of peace.

So today when I read this and really wanted to share this all with you.

JESUS CALLING - April 2 - by Sarah Young
I HAVE PROMISED to meet your needs according to My glorious riches. Your deepest, most constant need is for My Peace. I have planted Peace in the garden of your heart, where I live; but there are weeds growing there too: pride, worry, selfishness, unbelief. I am the Gardener, and I am working to rid your heart of those weeds. I do My work in various ways. When you sit quietly with Me, I shine the Light of My Presence directly into your heart. In this heavenly Light, Peace grows abundantly and weeds shrivel up. I also send trials into your life. When you trust Me in the midst of trouble, Peace flourishes and weeds die away. Thank Me for troublesome situations; the Peace they can produce far outweighs the trials you endure.
Philippians 4:19; 2 Corinthians 4:17


In the end when I finally realized I was not living the way God wanted, by having complete and total faith and trust in Him.  Only now am I able to start finding the kind of peace that comes from fully trusting God. 

So here I am, working towards letting go. Letting go of my planning and giving into whatever God has in store for me. It is not going to be easy, but I am certain God will guide me through and give me the strength and peace I need.  He is an awesome and powerful God- He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow! 



Phil 4:6
Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
