I have to be honest with you all. I don't feel that I have
walked in that Peace through the past weeks.
Through the death of my brother, the potential of moving to Alaska,
to finding another fixer-upper we could afford. Well I have
been stressed and not experiencing God's Perfect Peace
My Bible says:
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
because he trusteth in thee.
So as I look back on the past weeks
I think where did I fall short? not to condemn myself
but to grow from this situation.
I have come to the conclusion it was because I did not
spend enough time in God's WORD ,
I did a word search on the word, PEACE this morning
and yes, it is about staying in the WORD and clinging to the Lord
I am sure this is a lesson I will learn and re-learn
Deby's flesh just wants her own way from time to time and instead
will just get mentally flustered and whew, I am on a roll and not into the WORD
as much as I should be.
What is so good about this is how the Lord, gently reproves me from
HIS WORD, from preaching at church, from things read at blogs or just that :
"Still small voice"
We all are works in progress and I am so thankful for God's Grace and PEACE.
