Peace and Quiet...

We live in tumultuous times. Once again, this week's news was filled with violence and controversy.   I long for peace and quiet in the midst of this world's chaos.  In Isaiah 32:18 we read that God's people can dwell in peace, safety and quiet.  Perhaps there are some things that we can do to cooperate with God in making this happen.

1) Ask the Prince of Peace to dwell in you and in your home and family.
Jesus is the Prince of Peace.  Invite Him into every area of your life, home and family.  Give Him permission to show you anything in you, your home and your family that is a peace robber.  There are many things that can steal your peace.  Unforgiveness, offenses, worry, anxiety, overcrowded schedules, chaotic surroundings...I could go on and on.  The good news is that God is willing to show us the things that are keeping us from living in peace if we will ask Him to and then listen to Him.

  1. This is so true: "There are many things that can steal your peace. Unforgiveness, offenses, worry, anxiety, overcrowded schedules, chaotic surroundings." With the world the way it is, I catch myself losing peace over the smallest things. Thanks for the reminder to pray for peace in my heart as well as the world.

  2. An excellent reminder of what to do when we've allowed our peace to be stolen. Call on the Father.

  3. Resting in His peace. Such comforting words. Beautiful scripture and sharing of your lovely photo.
