The Gift of P E A C E

20140123_073547

Today I woke up in a horrible mood. My heart was racing and my mind was anxious and whirling. I had been up most of the night with terrible knee pain and panic about my eye problems.  And then to top off the morning I had gotten angry with my husband and snipped at him before I leaving for work.

The minute I got in the car to go to work my pity party started, I was crying and telling God I was tired. I was tired of the pain in my knees, tired of not sleeping, tired of the eye stuff, you name it I was tired of it.

As I topped the hill right before the church where I work I said, “Please Lord I just need a break, can you just give me a little peace?

And then I saw this beautiful sunrise….

I had to pull over to take that picture because it was so breathtaking. I then pulled into the parking lot and took a few more.

I actually took 16 more pictures  before I saw it. Do you see it?

Answered prayer was right  in front of my face.

Not just the beautiful sunrise but he also gave me the peace I had asked for.

P –  E –  A –  C –  E  he had spelled it out for me!

Today our church sign was frozen on the word peace (bottom left corner), some would say it was broken? i would say it was working perfectly 🙂

What an awesome gift and a blessing God gave me today. Sometimes I am still amazed that he loves me so much

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. Philippians 4:6-7

    What a wonderful reassurance T from the Lord , as they say it is the darkest before the dawn and yes lack of sleep can really tie us in knots and so does continued pain but we never suffer alone….

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    When the pain from the pinched nerve in my Spine, gets too much for me T I use God’s Balm, it gives me freedom for most of the day but I also ask Him for help to endure when all seems upside down and inside out and like with you He reassures me in a tangible way, we have a wonderful, merciful Loving God.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne

      I have prayed strength to endure too and he has delivered many many times. I haven’t been on the blog as much lately and have been wondering how you have been feeling, I hope you are doing better. Thanks for stopping by.
