Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

peace and joy

Life can be like rain. Sometimes it is a gentle rain. It waters the earth and freshens things up. Other times it can be a torrential down pour that can make driving dangerous.

Life can be like that at times. It can seem to come at us fast and furious. We barely catch our breath and here comes more.

I am reminded that my attitude plays a huge role in how I handle the rain storms and the storms of life.

The Message Bible reminds us in James 1:2-4

“Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.”

Jesus tells us in John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (NIV)

So, when you feel life coming at you full speed ahead — remember peace is available through Jesus.

Peace and joy go hand in hand.
Joy is peace dancing and Peace is joy resting!
