PEACE IN THE STORMS OF LIFE

This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small commission, at no extra cost to you.

 There are times in life, that God calls us to go through a

storm.  What do we do?

-Fall apart?

-Let fear overtake us?

-Get angry at God?

-Question God’s love?

For the child of God, these responses may be temporary, but God will bring us to a point of trust and peace.

Ephesians 2:14 says, “For He Himself is our peace…”  Isn’t that a beautiful thought?  Having Jesus, means having peace.

Instead of seeking an abstract thing called “peace,” we should seek Jesus.  When we have Him, we have His peace.

In John 14:27, Jesus speaks of His peace that He gives to His children.

 

The Getty’s sing a beautiful song that gives us the perfect perspective.

Jesus Draw Me Ever Nearer

Jesus draw me ever nearer as I labor through the storm.                                                     

You have called me to this passage, and I’ll follow, though I’m worn.

May this journey bring a blessing.  May I rise on wings of faith;  

And at the end of my heart’s testing, with Your likeness let me wake.

Jesus guide me through the tempest;  keep my spirit staid and sure.

When the midnight meets the morning, let me love You even more.

Let the treasures of the trial form within me as I go – 

And at the end of this long passage, let me leave them at Your throne.”

Over the next few months, we will continue to look at this subject of drawing closer to Jesus during the trials of life.

I hope you will share your thoughts with everyone.  Many of you have been through storms and are now on the other side.

Share with us the faithfulness of God to you!

Remember this verse:  “For He Himself is our peace…”  Ephesians 2:14

Blessings!

Until next time….
