Do You Know Where I Can Get Some Peace?!?🤔

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
(John 14:27)

What if “peace” was something you could purchase from your local neighborhood store? Would it be one of those sub par items that hardly sells – even on a “buy one get one” sale? or Would it be that must have “hot item”that everyone scrambling for?

Well, I believe it’ll be sold out as soon as it hit the shelves! I mean who living in today’s world isn’t looking for some level of peace? Let’s be clear, I’m not talking about just your regular run of the mill peace either. No, it has to be able to handle some tough stuff peace! Able to handle the stress of the daily grind, navigating various responsibilities, raising children, marriage, balancing the costs of living and working, financial strains, keeping up with family & friends, lay-offs; and oh yeah be sure to mix in a whole mutating COVID-19 pandemic. Talk about a need for PEACE! So wait…which store did you say has it in stock!?🤔

You and I both know that there’s no store that sale peace. Oh, now there’s certainly a bunch of stores that sell gadgets or electronic apps that say they create “peace” or a “peaceful” atmosphere. When the truth is these “band-aid” or temporary distraction(s) from our daily life…are just that temporary. After use, we’re right back where we started. Sounds like disparity, huh? Well don’t fret, all is not lost!! There’s a source of peace available for all. Peace that is able to withstand any circumstance or situation. From the daily life experience to the darkest moments we will ever face.

The good news is that we all have access to it!! It’s not found in a store or an app. But through Christ Jesus. He himself offers it to you and I. Look as He offers it to us in His own words in John 14:27: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.”

BOOM! It’s right there for the taking. 😌 Nothing we have pay for or download. All we have to do is confess and believe in the LORD Christ Jesus, accept what He has to offer and recieve His peace within our hearts. Peace unlike anything of this world. Peace that helps us endure the trials of the world. Let’s be intentional about receiving this peace. Let’s be encouraged that He will freely give it to us. We only need to ask.😇

Let’s Talk About Something NEW!

Let’s embrace the new transformation that the LORD God has caused and/or causing within our lives.

Let’s be willing to share our transformation testimonies with others. As we walk with the LORD God-we all have had a “caterpillar to a butterfly” transition. Old life to New life. (And it’s not always a one time thing…we’re constantly evolving into what God has planned for us). Be mindful that what God does for us is not always just for us alone. It’s to be shared.

Let’s be intentional about encouraging others to get to know the LORD God. The One who can do the same life changing transformation in them; that He did for you & I.

Let’s get busy talking about something, NEW! ~❤K

Psalm 23:1-4

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

Be encouraged as you enter this new day. The LORD is with you and there’s absolutely nothing that you may encounter; that His Holy Spirit won’t see you through!

Be Encouraged • Be Blessed & Believe ~❤K

First Things 1st

This particular passage of scripture tells to seek God first. That translates into before we put our hearts & minds to anything else; check in with God. Yes, this includes even before that first sip of coffee in the morning. (Some reading this can feel my coffee☕ struggle,🙂). Now, it doesn’t mean that seeking God first will make everything smooth and easy. (There’s a whole other scripture that addresses our trials). However, when we DO seek God first: We can be confident that He’ll provide everything we need and guide us through whatever we may face. That’s some good news!! Be Encouraged, ❤~K

#Facts‼️

There’s nothing that can come up against Almighty God and win. NOTHING. Those who abide in God can rest in that fact. What a blessed assurance to have.

So, remind yourself today – whatever you face if you’re walking with God it won’t defeat you (it may sometimes “feel” like it will – but it won’t). Because He goes before you and He’s always in control.

I pray that God’s Word gives you confidence, and encouragement. Know that no matter what challenges await…He’s got you!!
