Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

trouble – peace?

I scrolled facebook this afternoon and once again noticed that there many who are facing some pretty big issues. Sadly there are those who leave God out of the solution.

When my peace is lacking, I can trace it back to a lack of rejoicing on my part, or my gentleness has been replaced with harshness, or I am entertaining worry, or I am ungrateful at that moment or I probably haven’t prayed about it, or I have allowed my thoughts to become negative. Sometimes all of the above are evident. All of these things do seem to go together.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:4-8 (NIV)

Want peace? God’s Word gives us instructions.
