God’s Peace

I am filled with God’s peace. There’s things that I automatically tend to worry about, and I know better. I know God is fully and completely in control. My mind can tend to wander at times, that’s when worry creeps in. Worry is a human default mode that kicks in when I start to think I can fix things on my own, I’m forgetting that I’m not the One in control, He is. I relax knowing that His peace surrounds me. I relax knowing that all of the questions that I ask myself, He’s already answered. When I ask myself, “Why couldn’t I have done that? Why did this happen? Why didn’t they choose me? Why did I have to go through this? These are all questions that make us worry, and sometimes we can start to feel sorry for ourselves. I always have to take one or two steps backwards and collect my bearings. When I pray to God and I put things in His hands, I am at peace. God shields me and protects me from things that I’m not even aware of. He knows what’s coming, He knows what’s ahead. He sees the finale. If it’s meant for me not to be involved in something, then I know I’m being shielded by His peace. There’s things I don’t need to see. God sees everything, and He knows His plans. He doesn’t need my advice. He knows my dilemmas, and He already has things worked out for His glory. He keeps me protected, He knows what I can handle, and He knows when I just don’t need to be involved. When I pray and I bring my worries and concerns to Him, He knows just how to handle things. I may not see His plan working right away, but I know when I try to go at things alone without Him, it just turns into chaos.
Philippians 4:6-7 ESV – Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Being surrounded by His peace, I think better, I rest better, and I feel better. He loves me, He guides me, and He protects me. Each morning I am thankful for His love and grace that He showers all around me.
Romans 8:5-6 ESV – For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
Have a blessed day!!!

About Rita:
Being a Christ follower throughout my life has been quite the journey.  He’s taken me through deep waters and trials that have tested me over the years.  I have fallen so many times, and He’s always been there to lift me back up on my feet.  Through a series of broken relationships, I finally figured out what was important to me, putting God first and letting Him lead me.  I love writing and learning, and growing with God.  I have a beautiful, adult daughter that I love spending time with whenever I can.  My hope is to be a tool for God to use to lead others to Him.
