Are you searching for peace?

"At any moment you might have gone to Him and found rest." ~Drummond, Streams in the Desert
The peace of God is at our disposal. Why then do we live such lives of turmoil?
It is because we do not recognize His peace. We do not appropriate it for ourselves. We do not rest in it.
We do not choose to turn our backs on the "crazy" that is our life, and turn our face to focus on Him.
Are you drowning in the restless agitation of an ongoing trial?
Relinquish your hold on all the details, turn to the God of Peace, and allow His Words to comfort you and His Spirit to calm you there in the midst of your storm.
Isaiah 9:6-7a "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end..."
