God's Peace

You will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,...You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence. - Psalms 16:10-11

This is from my devotion today. It is a book Moments of Peace For Moms from Our Daily Bread. 

My thoughts:  Our world is in such a mess these days and I pray daily for peace, but this devotion reminds me that I can have peace within myself no matter what is happening in the world. Jesus will fill my heart with peace if I just allow myself to feel it. 

Have you ever been grieving from the loss of a loved one and suddenly a friend wraps you in their arms and gives you a large hug? Have you ever been struggling with something and suddenly received a call or package from that special friend that may not be close enough to hug you, but you know they would if they were here? If so, you know how that brings a peaceful feeling to you immediately. A hug from a friend, spouse, child, or grandchild can bring such peace to us at a time in our lives that we are feeling a loss or extreme sadness for any reason. If we allow ourselves to surrender to Christs' arms, we can feel the same peace. 

The peace that comes from God is truly a gift to us. God has given us life and yes, He gives us pain, but He provides the peace that we need to deal with the pain. God will carry you through the pain if you are willing to let Him. His word can bring peace if we will just listen. Talk to God during the pain as well as in the good times. He is always listening.
