” Wonderful Peace! “
How often in the first half of this year have you found yourself in a constant state of worry? We worry if we are making the right decisions when it comes to going out or staying in, sending our kids back to school or keeping them at home, attending church or joining online, wearing a mask or not wearing a mask… I could go on and on! I found myself right in this very spot last week. I was so concerned about whether or not I was doing what was right and I found myself completely overwhelmed! I sat down in my living room and just started venting all of these feelings to the Lord. While in this place of prayer, an old song we seldom hear sung anymore came to my mind:
“Peace, peace, wonderful peace, Coming down from the Father above! Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray! In fathomless billows of love!”
Isn’t it amazing to know we have access to such wonderful peace! Even in the midst of the ever-changing nature of our society we can rest in the sure foundation of God’s peace.
This week as you begin to feel the unease of this season creep in, begin to pray:
God, remove all feelings of unrest from my spirit. Help me to lean not to my own understanding but to trust You in all things.
Lord, I need Your wisdom and guidance as I face the unknowns of this season. Help me make right choices for me and my family.
Lord, let Your peace surround my family in our coming and going this week. Keep us in Your perfect peace as we continue to do Your will.
