Your Peace Will Meet Me There

Updated on November 12, 2022

Kathy was a rehabilitation therapist. After receiving a life-changing diagnosis, she felt a spiritual call to share life's journey in Hubs.

Hurdles are to be scaled
Hurdles are to be scaled
Don't get stuck in the swirling DRAIN!
Don't get stuck in the swirling DRAIN!

Deflecting from His path is not the plan of God and not what we want to do!

Caught in the whirlwind of life, do we succumb to the feeling of chaos in natural surroundings as we abandon the grace and peace available? If we become deflected, there’s a definite possibility of giving way under the pressure of the world’s weight.

We live at risk of deflection by the business of life, which gives way to disappointment and even frustration with our human self as we lose sight of what we know to be true. Flailing in quick, lose breath as we yield to the anxiety of going under, forgetful of the lifeline available in peace. The peace of a quieted mind in surrender, trust in a rope that will reach us in desperation, and the complete knowing we are never alone, as God works through humanity to help in tumultuous times. So we need to remember, “His Peace will meet me there.”

Along life’s highway, you will not go unscathed by the storms. There will be hurdles, twists, and turns on the journey, but these experiences can allow for growth even in extreme circumstances and bring us closer to our heavenly home if we don’t lose sight of our actual goal.

Strength comes when we defer action and promote peace instead of allowing life’s spirit to swirl the drain in relinquished hopelessness and untruths. Deflection in these cases is not of God when they sway us from the truth. We react as fools in the relinquishment of becoming Spirit-filled together, as every time we allow this disappointment in self, the fact is we forsake the peace available.

If we swirl the drain focusing on disappointment, we stay in a constant pull of a downward spiral. Challenges and mistakes are inevitable but together, sharing the impossibilities of life and learning there’s always hope in circumstance, we then know our hope is in Christ alone.

Unceasing Prayer Is Key

God has provided a few exciting happenings, bringing me to heaven’s door; people ask, what’s it like to come close to “the other side” and back? I will not always proceed with this discussion; I often choose not to because it lacks importance. It’s not about my story but God’s glory, and I know of this life gift and how He wants me to use it. I also understand a person’s dubiety at the possibility of incredible miracles God allows daily. We often miss the tiny whispers of His Spirit leading, protecting, and guiding when fixated on our chaotic world.

To say our story’s lack of importance does not mean they’re not meaningful or relevant; they are God spoke in parables. While our stories are inspiring, deciphering the clarity of their purpose and how best to use them becomes blurred. To clear things up, go to His word. Our testimony is imperative, and our story maybe not be as much; it must tell the good news, seeking the wisdom of Christ. Considering what is of Him and this world, the Bible tells us these truths.

1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.

1 John 5:11, and this is the testimony that God gave us eternal life and life in His Son.

Luke 12:48 “From everyone who is given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted much, much will be asked.”

Phil 2:14-15 from the Message Bible - Do everything readily and cheerfully- no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving message into the night.

We don’t need a near-death moment to know the truth of God’s peace since everything God allows can be life-changing when open to His Message. We need to believe and trust in His mighty, unfailing love while going to Him.

I admit I struggle with unceasing prayer. The world is much louder than I would like; a real battle exists to tune it out and tune into Jesus! Sometimes I need a minute, wishing as a Christian I would lavish people with God’s grace as much as I talk about sharing it.

No one likes to fail. However, we as Christians fail in God’s grace’s will. We have an urgent obligation to do well. Love is patient, kind, does not boast, is not proud, is not rude, is not self-seeking, not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs; love never fails! (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

How does your report card look today? I, for one, have some serious homework to do for Jesus. He deserves more from me!

There’s a song that I feel may give a glimpse into my moment if I were to describe it. (The song title is Prince of Peace, by a current Christian group named Hillsong United.)

Prayerful Hope within the Word Of God

Sin separates, but a prayerful alliance is a steadfast weapon against destruction. Therefore, evil wants to create a wedge. Where unceasing prayer is a tall order, it’s not impossible if we find a balance.

God allows the imperfect sway, using everything. He’s omnipresent; thus, our frivolous attempts to push Him aside, assuming we can go it alone, are futile. The Holy Spirit will commune with His children with perfect timing and method. We grow toward His purpose in our lives, not our own intervention.

We are an imperfect embodiment of His Spirit, balking at His intervention with tantrums, and in response, He holds us closer still.

What if, instead, we remember to pray, do our best to stay in His Word, and remain obedient without deflection from His path, refusing to allow Satan one point within the spiritual battle?

How can we carry on or believe we have the power to change His plan? Our understanding of the one who walked in love, our protector, our teacher, our heart, our Jesus, allows our circumstances. Good or not, He uses it for our growth, drawing us closer to Him.

As Christians, we primarily aim to deflect sin as best we can, sharing Jesus. We disappoint others and ourselves, and our Christ-like example lacks the luster we wish to display. As Christians, aren’t we supposed to be better, so why do we deflect? God is up to something unique, and every action and reaction is a part of His plan. He tells us, “Be Still and Know, I am God.” Psalm 46:10.

Left to this journey in an unsanctified state of being, one wish is to share my heart in a way that shows my JESUS. Living in the Spirit of knowing if I seek Him, He will meet me there!

The Apostle Paul shares as we live through the Spirit, yet sin lives in me. I am forgiven, set free! I will struggle with the acts of the evil living in me. One day I will be open to glorifying my King in His perfect, constant, and unwavering peace. Until His timing is for our homecoming, I will struggle as I do what I do, not always as I want to do. (Read Roman’s Chapter 7:14-20) He makes it clear.

Praise God for Romans Chapter 8:1-38, which tells of life through the Spirit, how we are free to live per God’s plan as His children, co-heirs with Christ to share in His Kingdom.

Knowing all of this, I continue to slip, forgetting to give the grace that God offers, remembering to move away from the bounds of sin as I succumb to fearful lies, temporary pain, the judgment that is not the truth, and sin. I forget to love as I am loved, unconditionally, and without expectation, for the most significant thing we can give is LOVE.

I have described us as human beings. Believing we can help one another in our slips. We can pray together and rebuke the enemy at hand. We feel in the Trinity, God the Father, Son, and Most Holy Spirit! Believing in our heavenly home and the truth that He has many rooms prepared. Accepting people together living in the light of God can deflect the enemy, and Satan will not win. We give him so much of our hearts, time, and energy. Believe this, we are God’s children, and He meets us right where we are as it leads us to live by His Spirit.

We are Broken made whole by Christ

Prince Of Peace

Hurdles are just obstacles; you can scale them with the uplifting of the Holy Spirit. His Peace will meet us right where we are. He will supply all our needs. We will be still and quiet, trusting in your unfailing love. Our hope is in You, the Prince Of Peace, and Your LIGHT meets us there!

To Pray is to let God take over Philippians 4:6-7

Dear God, thank you for Your Amazing Grace.

Dear God, thank you for setting me free.

Dear God, thank you for Your Son.

Dear God, thank you for the cross.

Dear God, Help us be less.

Dear God, Help us be more.

Dear God, Help us love as You Love

Dear God, thank you for forgiveness.

Dear God, thank You for Your Love and Grace.

Dear God, thank You for laying Yourself down and picking up the broken.

Dear God, Help us trust in You, the Prince of Peace. Thank You for Your Light that meets Us There!
