Have you ever been in a storm – not a real life thunderstorm, but the ones that bring temptation to shake your soul?
A call from the doctor, loss of a job, a miscarriage, an unforeseen circumstance that tries to creep in& tell you that the storm you’re facing is bigger than the God you serve?
God has called us to thrive in the middle of waters we don’t understand. He has called us to not just SURVIVE, but to THRIVE in the midst of these storms. How? Through HIS peace. I love this translation of a common verse, Matthew 11:28-30 from the The Passion Translation (TPT)
“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.”
Often times when Jesus is speaking to us, or his disciples he says to, “FOLLOW Me.” This is one of the only passages where Jesus says to COME TO HIM. Because HE is the source of Peace. He doesn’t say FOLLOW, He says COME…
“I AM YOUR PEACE”.
I AM YOUR SUSTAINING JOY!
Peace is not a feeling, or a place, it’s a promise through a Person, and His name is JESUS!
The truth is, in every storm or unexpected circumstance, we are given a choice. A choice to choose peace that only Christ can give to our weary, needy souls. If you are in need of that peace today, say this prayer out loud with me💕
Thank you that YOU are my source of peace. That even in the unknown, you go before me, prepare a place for me& never leave my side. You call the storms around me to still, as I abide in you& your word. Thank you for the gift of unwavering peace that Your Son died to give to me. Because of Your love, I’m able to face the unknown with a promise that you will never leave or forsaken me. A promise that as I join my life with yours, your peace rushes in louder that the noise around me in my everyday life. Thank you that you are my ultimate source of peace& in you, and only you, I can find refreshment& rest when I lay my worries at your feet. Thank you for being my Lord and Savior, in Jesus Name, Amen.💖
I hope this prayer helps you brave through any tribulations or storms that you might be facing today. Remember to brave through the storms! God has callin you to peace! Fight through the hard stuff& rejoice in the peace that God has for you!💗💗
Always looking to jesus🙌💕
