When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

Sweet Tranquility

I am sitting here before my old computer draped with a lovely knitted blanket on my shoulders. A slight chill tonight, though I believe it isn't the chill keeping me awake this evening but the Starbucks Coffee I had a bit too late in the day. Thus, as my tired soul mate drifted to sleep snoozing away; my mind starts to meditate on my Lord and His blessings, one being my lovely family.
Lately, I have been a bit on the 'up-tight' side. Maybe tense is a better word, I know that as now I am in the midst of my 40's there are chemical issues happening within...but I also know serving the Lord as long as I have, there are also spiritual issues to always take into account! Do I hear an 'Amen'?
The Lord laid on my heart to once again pray for HIS  Peace over each room in our house, over every soul in our family as well as our church. Without peace there is tension, sharp words, exhaustion (from restless sleep), melancholic emotions and sometimes depression.
"PEACE is defined to be a state of quiet, or tranquility, freedom from disturbance or agitation--calmness, repose."
So, I obeyed my Jesus and prayed for His Peace.
The words, "Peace, be still!" Rang loudly in my heart-I can see my Lord looking with a sternness in His eyes towards the storm as He said this. Praise Him! He does this now, He has given us that authority to do that today in our lives.
Thank You Jesus-for Your Peace, a Peace that passes all our understandings!
"For He is [Himself] our peace (our bond of unity and harmony). He has made us both [Jew and Gentile] one [body], and has broken down (destroyed, abolished) the hostile dividing wall between us." Ephesians 2: 14
"You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You."Isaiah 26: 3
1-Harmony with God brings Peace. Do this by dwelling in His Presence and His Word; DAILY!
2-Trust; trust His laws, His Word...not allowing then fear to even take residence in the Mind & Heart.
3-This really goes with #1 but worship..worship Jesus, daily. Sing songs of praise and adoration...not only will this edify the Lord & Savior of your soul, but this will also bring your mind/heart focused on Him (and NOT the storms in life).
Shalom
Coming Up: Making Sure that there is Peace for your mate.

  1. God has been speaking to me in this way as well. His most common answer to me is Trust Me! I am not sure how to unwind myself yet, but am sure that He is sufficient and His Peace, O His Peace is soooo wonderful!
