Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Hear the words in the Bible ~ "Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid". There is something about peace that comes when you trust the Lord. We might not understanding everything that comes our way, but the journey continues. Life is a continued learning experience and daily choices. Through it all, let us not worry about things.
Matthew 6:34 New International Version (NIV)
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I guess it is easier said than done when it comes to things the scare us or hurts of life. They are real and it becomes even stronger when we think about it. Keeping your mind stayed on Jesus can be a challenge at times. As I reflect back today, I see how God has brought me down a road of mixed emotions. God has been good to me and I want to count those blessings. God has allowed me to have free will and I've messed up along the way. I am redeem by God love and want to share that with you.
Ephesians 1:7-10 New International Version (NIV)
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, 9 he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING ~
YOU ARE REDEEMED BY GOD
Psalm 34:4-10 New International Version (NIV)
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
9 Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
HOW COME ~
We can questions all day long and never really get the answer. We can ask why the world is this way and find that each of us have free will. Change comes by hearing the word (Bible) and our own actions. Asking God into our hearts is each of our choices. I was talking with someone about faith and she said, "you can have faith all day long and get the same answer". That is true, but I choose to believe God continues to do miracles and he is able to change a situation in an moment's time. I might not always know the how come answer, but I know that God is real inside my heart and I've seen to many miracle to doubt that he can.
Purpose this a good day! My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
