Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

peace?

Are you thirsty for peace?

Relationship conflicts
Health issues
Financial binds
Concern for children/parents
Phone call that didn’t bring good news
Our USA government
It doesn’t take me long to scroll my news feed on Facebook and see that people I love are hurting. Huge and small obstacles abound.

So I pray.

Health wise, I find myself on a road that I traveled at this time last year. While I have made the choice to not worry or allow this to overwhelm me, I find myself seeking God for peace that goes beyond my ability to understand the what, why, will, and where questions.

My go-to scripture:
Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

That situation that breaks your heart, that relationship that is in a shambles, that unexpected expense, that struggle in knowing how to navigate the switching roles between you and mom or dad, that phone call that threatened to rock your world, the future of our country … talk with God about it until your inner being is quieted. Remember that part of talking is listening.

As I was listening, Psalm 46;10 dropped into my heart.
“Be still, and know that I am God;”
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!” (I will talk more about this verse tomorrow.)

For now – go ahead – reread Philippians 4;6-7 Let it soak in deep and then do it!

thanking God for peace,

til next time,
