Once again I was privileged to attend this evening's prayers meeting. The following is a meditation from UCB radio and led by my dear friend Bea:
" Peace is your inheritance, your birthright. When you have lost your peace it is harder to hear from God. Your best problem solving resource is peace; anxiety blocks any solution. God's peace is available to you if you choose it"
How ironic that I should encounter these words after the fact! Last week was particularly challenging both physically and mentally; I reached a point where I could not truly pray nor find comfort in the Bible. During times of great anxiety the only word I could breathe was the holy name of Jesus and little by little the tempest was calmed and peace ensued. His loving and gentle words to us says it all:
" Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you: not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
John 14 v 27
May the peace of God be your anchor in the storms of life.
