Peace that Passeth Freak-Out-/Pull-Your-Hair-Out/Meltdown Mode

You know those days?

We've been having them in sequence around here. 

When you would prefer to be in control, but the only answer you have is, "I don't know."

I should be stressed out. I should be nervous. I should be renting my clothes and putting on satcloth and ashes.

Every situation of those dear to us -even our own position- screams anxiety.

Yet, we're okay. Really. In fact... we even have joy. 

Why? How? 

We have been given the perfect remedy.

"Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice."

We're rejoicing.

"Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful {stressed} for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."

We are choosing to give thanks. And in turn, its making us thankful. :)

"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

We're accepting peace.

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

We're setting our minds on truth. His report. His promises. 

And we're holding on to this...

"Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you." Philippians 4:4-9

Embracing His Peace,
