In the midst of the storm...PEACE
The first big storm system has come and gone. Leaving only a few signs of even being here, at least around me that is. Other places still have the reminders (10 inches of snow!).
The wind was strong and wild and non-stop. I kept thinking about the disciples in the boat and Jesus asleep. He was resting for the work on the "other side" of the lake. The disciples had just witnessed the feeding of 5000 men, but quickly came to the conclusion that this storm was their demise.
The storm is raging in my family. Nothing serious, just lots of little things that drain a person. Continuous things that take time to unravel and smooth out. Some days it seems the storm will be my demise, but that is just not the TRUTH.
PEACE, this word is what calmed the storm and the disciples. A word spoken that changed everything.
Peace is more than a feeling, it is a life style. It is not something that can be found, it has to be lived.
You become Peace. It is fruit of the Spirit that is alive and well in you. Peace becomes apart of your identity.
