Have you ever gotten a point in your life where you have felt like you couldn’t take another disappointment or any more bad news? There have been days when I have felt like there has been a black cloud hovering overhead. The unexpected deaths of a few close friends and relatives over the past several months have made me shake my head and declare that I’ve had “enough!” The challenges that I face may seem overwhelming, but I take comfort reminding myself to relax, to let go and let God take the load that I wasnever meant to carry.
We were never promised that every day would be perfect, but we were promised that we would never walk alone, because God has promised to never leave nor forsake us. And, THAT assurance should be enough to calm our fears and anxieties. There’s a simple saying that speaks volumes to me: Know God, know peace. No God, no peace. Ask God to surround you with His peace today.
Take action now: Meditate on Phillipians 4:7 – And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (New King James)
Embrace this truth: Sometimes God doesn’t calm the storms in our lives…He sometimes simply calms us.
