MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️:
Morning Loves! Happy Friday! Wanted to share this as we enter the weekend:
“I leave the gift of PEACE with you…my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace.” John 14:27
Fragile: easily broken, shattered or damaged. Brittle; frail.
That kind of peace sounds pitiful. Not solid. Wispy…well, fragile. That kind of peace looks like “I have a good amount in my checking account!” “Yay! I got the promotion I wanted!” “Shew…the test results came back negative!” “I’m so glad those people like me!”
Peace that HINGES upon an outside determinant. Nope. No thanks. Talk about living on a roller coaster ride of up and down and in and out of “perceived peace.”
HIS peace is perfect. Solid. Able to withstand ANY storm or change. His peace comes when we see him and give him place as the PRINCE OF PEACE. That means he’s in charge. Ruling over our hearts and minds and spirits. Peace is a fruit OF the spirit so we will never, ever find it in the flesh. We have to go deeper and to another place to live in it and from it.
It’s a journey worth taking.
Thanks I really needed to read this today!
