True Serenity

Do you ever feel..out of control?

Is something happening around you that so disrupts your thoughts...

that the  relative peace you were experiencing just one short hour ago is gone?

Has your day gone from first class to coach in like 5 seconds flat?

Has someone done something that effects you...

...and your loved ones, but you had nothing to say about it?

Sometimes we have to let go...

...of how we're thinking and feeling.

We have to see our circumstances in light of God's perspective on our lives.

What does God want me to see?

What does God want me to do?

How does God want me to react?

I want the peace that can only be aquired when I trade... stress 

for rest... Jesus.

Linking up to JamWithMe Thursdays at
