looking down here at Earth shaking his head and having a big ole’ belly laugh at us thinking we are in control? I have had that thought so many times today that I decided to blog about it. I have several situations right now that God and I are having a tug of war with. I give these situations to him and 15 minutes later I’m taking them back again. I decided instead of calling Tammy Brown and making her remind me of this I would look in the index of my bible and find some scripture to cling to and what a surprise I found the verse that I clung to over and over again at the lowest point in my life and you know what this verse really spoke to me? The situations I am dealing with are just a bump in the road, maybe a little scarey, maybe uncomfortable, disappointment may happen, hurt might be around the corner BUT nothing absolutely NOTHING compared to what God has already brought me through. I will continue tonight to search for peace and will remember the following verse when I’m tempted to let ol’ slew foot get the best of me….
John 14:27 (New International Version)
27Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
