The Key to Peace

One of the ways that God has ministered to me is through the power of His Word. Jesus said, " I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." - John 16:33
I drink deeply from the well of His word daily.


In the midst of tribulation, Christ is the key to my peace. It is only through His power that I can receive it. Whether He calms the storm itself, or calms me within the storm, I can rest assured that He will be with me, and that there is no need to endure it on my own.

Emily, I am not sure what you have to deal with, but whatever it may be, I'm sorry for your burdens. You have a lovely attitude about it. I know that for myself, having a right spirit is key to enduring the things that are not easy.

Love,
Lynn

Lynn,
I have a back condition that prevents me from enjoying many activities. Maybe one day the Lord will see fit to remove my physical burden, but until then, I hope to serve Him as best I can. Thank you for caring, and for your encouraging comments.

Chaotic Beauty,
Yes, it is a learning process, even for our brother Paul who "learned" to be content in all circumstances. I'm so grateful for his example to follow.

Silvana,
I'm so happy my post encouraged you today. It blesses me to be used by the Lord in such a manner. May you find comfort in His word.
