What I Did on my Summer Vacation - Part 1

Updated on September 4, 2015

Finding Peace

I was excited for my annual trip with the girls. The car was packed, the women in place and off we went for 3 days to Hershey, Pennsylvania, the home of chocolate. But it wasn't chocolate that we were anticipating - we were excited to see Joyce Meyer at the Giant Center.


Each year we make this annual trek to Hershey to hear Joyce. Each I learn something new and I hope it makes me a better Christian and person.


This year she announce a new book coming in the Spring called Overload - about stress - we all cheered - I mean, who doesn't have stress. Then I found out something great - and, that is we all have peace - really. How do I know - Jesus said so.


John 14:27


Peace I leave with you my (own) peace I now give you and bequeath to you. Not as the world give do I give you. Do not let you hearts be troubled neither let them be afraid.


So STOP allowing yourself to be agitated or disturbed by outside forces, Jesus left us peace - we need to use it.


Just knowing this has helped me immensely. When I feel like my peace is being stolen by a person or by situation I just think "Peace I leave with you" It's here - it's real - SO


DO NOT BE


troubled

afraid

agitated

disturbed

fearful

intimidated

cowardly or unsettled because Jesus GAVE US PEACE.


Pursue God's peace and refuse to live with out it.

Prayer


Dear God - You gave me peace through your Son Jesus, help me to find it - in my mind, in my soul and in my heart.

Amen
