It's early. Noelle is still asleep upstairs while I sit here in my living room with my laptop open, a piping hot cup of peppermint tea in front of me, the heater blasting and the Word of God playing on my phone. I like to take a moment to breathe before my day begins. I have several projects to work on today. Often, in the still of the morning, God speaks to my heart. It's in the quiet moments that He can speaks most clearly. He doesn't shout or yell. He whispers words to our hearts.
He gives me songs to listen to or sing in worship and He allows me time to sit quietly in His presence. This simple, beautiful version of "Give Me Jesus" is a peaceful and positive way to start my day. I thank God for those quiet moments in the still of the morning.
As I sit here, I thank God for all I have - family, friends, church, work, grace, mercy and peace. The list goes on and on, but this morning, the peace that passes understanding surrounds me. I am grateful for peace in the middle of life's craziness. This scripture is one to remember if you're looking for peace.
Peace is really a choice to believe that God is faithful and true in the middle of our circumstance. We must remember WHO GOD IS and trust that He loves us more than words can say.
Have a beautifully, peaceful day in His presence.
