Recently, I’ve really been feeling God’s power. Through the highs and lows of my life, he has continued to stretch out his hand in grace and love, and led me to the right way. He has comforted me in so many ways, and what I am about to talk about is just one way he has blessed me in my life.
One of the gifts he has given me recently is: Peace.
But before we talk about this, I want to announced that this post is my HUNDREDTH post!!! Thank you so much for staying with me this whole time! I’m excited to continue to write in this blog and share my thoughts on various things in this world and in Japan.
To me, emotions tend to get stirred around pretty easily. They get out of hand, especially at night. Little things bug and taunt me. It’s hard to feel relaxed or peaceful, and the worst thing is that I usually get like this right before bed. Can I go to sleep? Not really.
If I didn’t know Jesus, if I didn’t know what to believe in, then I don’t know what I would do. But I have a God that is powerful enough to do anything. And he’s on my side.
So, when I feel like I don’t have enough peace and my emotions might start coming out, I talk to God. I tell him what I’m feeling. I tell him that I’m troubled. And that I trust in him, before he has helped me so many times before. And he gives me peace.
My heart becomes quieter, I feel his love in my veins, and my emotions feel more controlled. It’s really like magic. Empowering and utterly refreshing, the peace he gives me helps me do things that I couldn’t do with stirred up emotions.
God is like that. He knows just what I need. He provides the right thing to his children.
Before I sign out, I want to end with a Bible verse: “In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.” – Psalm 4:8
Have you recently needed peace? Did God provide it?
