Peaceful Trust

Did you ever

Trust God

with something,

but then you keep taking it back?

Like when God tells us to~

"Do not be anxious about anything,

but in every situation,

by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,

present your requests to God." (Phil. 4:6)

And then He tells us what He will do~

"And the peace of God,

which transcends all understanding,

will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Phil.. 4:7)

But I want more than



to guard my heart


I want what I want when I want it.

But what if "guarding" was way better

than actually getting what

you want when you want it?

To guard~

"Before you know it,

a sense of God’s wholeness,

everything coming together for good,

will come and settle you down.

It’s wonderful what happens when

Christ displaces worry at the center of your life." (Phil. 4:7 The Message)

To guard~

For Jesus to take

you and I

From Anxiety to Peace~

in the midst of waiting for

what we want when we want~

trumps it all


His Peace

is what enables us

to do this thing called



we can't always get what we want


we can get what He wants to give.!

So what are you Trusting God with

or need to Trust God with

that you can't let go?

Let's make the

Great Exchange

this very moment

and present it to


and leave it at

His feet

so that we will


His Peace

that guards our hearts

His Peace

that transcends all understanding


His Peace

is not something that we can produce on our own~

as I have tried and failed every time.

So why not listen to the



means what

He says and says what He means~

"I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties.

But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” John 16:33
