10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 5: Thankful for God’s Peace

Colossians 3 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:15

Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts and always be thankful.

 

Today I am thankful that I have God’s peace in my life.  Not long ago, I was talking to a friend who was telling me about all the stress and drama in their life and afterward all I could think was, “Thank God I have peace in my life!” It wasn’t always this way though, through the years I’ve learned to trust in the Lord with all my heart and I’ve learned to let go and let Him have His way.  I know that God is in control and the closer I draw to Him the more peace I have.

Peace

John 14 27.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

 

Things are going to happen in life that make you sad, scared or are just hard to get through.  When your heart is hurting, troubled or afraid turn to Jesus, He’ll give you peace beyond compare.

Experience God for Yourself

Psalm 34 8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 34:8

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

 

I invite you to experience the infinite goodness of the Lord.  He is perfect in every way, the author of all good things, everything about Him is good and He loves you.  Turn to Him, put your hope in Him, and put your trust in Him alone.  He is the only one that can fill your heart with peace.  You will never know what it’s like to have a relationship with the Lord until you make an effort to really experience Him for yourself through prayer and reading the Word of God.

Meditate During Prayer  

Psalm 77 12

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 77:12

I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.

 

During prayer, take time to reflect on all that the Lord has done for you.  This is especially helpful when your current circumstances are challenging.  Remembering the ways God has been merciful to you in the past will give you comfort and peace as He brings you through your present situation.

Live at Peace

Romans 12 18.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Romans 12:18

If possible, to the best of your ability, live at peace with all people.

 

We cannot control what other people do, but we certainly can control our own actions and responses.  It may not always be easy, but it will be worth it to try to live peacefully with others, especially those who are difficult to deal with.

Happy Father’s Day 

Proverbs 20 7.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 20:7

The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.

 

Fathers, you are responsible for teaching your children about the Lord.  Be a spiritual leader by living a life of integrity. Show your children love, discipline when necessary and have compassion on them.  Children, obey, respect and honor your father as the Lord commands.  Fathers and children, remember that no one is perfect, forgive each other and try to live in peace.
