Day 21: The Peace Of Stillness


All is CALM.

Not outside of you, but INSIDE of you.

And you wonder how it is possible,

because you are still living in

the same circumstances

that you wish would change,

yet they are staying the same,

but you are

CALM

despite the raging seas.

You try to shake the boat,

but it stays

STILL.

And you wonder how it is possible.

And GOD wonders

why you are wondering

because

HE PROMISES the CALM

in the middle of the raging seas~

"And the PEACE of GOD that transcends ALL understanding

will guard you HEARTS and your MINDS in CHRIST JESUS".*

Your HEART. My HEART.

Your MIND. My MIND.

GOD'S PEACEFUL CALM

that

TRANSCENDS

that

SURPASSES

ALL

UNDERSTANDING.

So you sit in

HIS PEACE

that is GIFTED to you

because

you

did

FIRST THINGS FIRST~

"...but IN EVERYTHING [every circumstance and situation]

by prayer and petition with thanksgiving,

continue to make your [specific] requests known to GOD".

DEAR GOD~

I give you EVERYTHING.

I give you

EVERY

CIRCUMSTANCE

that strives to steal my PEACE.

I thank YOU for taking every

CIRCUMSTANCE

that strives to steal

YOUR PEACE

because

YOU know how to deal with

"_________________" better than I do.

I RECEIVE

YOUR PEACE that

TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING!

AMEN!

Did you DO it?

Are you thinking about DOING it?

Do you want HIS PEACE

more than you crave

your circumstance to change?

Yikes!

Do you want HIS PEACE

more than you crave your circumstance to change?

Oh to experience

HIS PEACE

when you TRUST GOD with

EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE,

even the CIRCUMSTANCE that strives to

bleed hopelessness

into your life.

Oh DO IT!

For when you experience

HIS PEACE

HE truly

TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING

as HIS PEACE

brings its friends with it~

HOPE

JOY

and

LOVE

that

TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING,

as you sit in the boat

that is oh so

STILL

on the raging seas

because

"the PEACE of GOD that transcends ALL understanding

will guard you HEARTS and your MINDS in CHRIST JESUS" *(Philippians 4:6-7).

FIRST THINGS FIRST~

"PEACE BE STILL"
