Peace of God.
What do you think when you hear this phrase?
I think it sounds pretty. Like a gift all wrapped up in pretty paper with a pretty bow attached. It sounds simple…
But, for me, peace is anything but simple.
You see, I'm a worrier, a fretter, a "stew on things" person. I wrestle with life, always trying to get the upper hand. Yes, I love the imagery of resting in green meadows, and being led beside peaceful streams…
But more often than not, I find myself smack dab in the middle of a weed patch, next to a dry gulch!
Are you anything like me? (Please tell me I'm not alone…!)
Why is that?
I'm a believer, an ardent follower of Jesus – I should be experiencing the Peace of God.
So, why is it so elusive?
