Are you letting peace take control in the midst of this time of unrest and turmoil? 

Are you at a point where you feel anxious and feel as though everything around you is going 100pmh?  Take a moment and ask yourself, “Why am I in such a hurry and constant rush?”

The word “peace” appears in the Bible 420 times. It is very clear that the Lord wants you to live in peace. God is not in a hurry and desires for you to slow down and let His peace rule in your heart. 

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.”- Colossians 3:15

Finding peace is easier said than done. Whether you are dealing with job stress, family, relationships, financial problems, or any other obstacle that may come your way; it can be difficult to find peace. It’s only through Christ, The Prince of Peace, that you can find true peace.

Being in a constant hurry can make you have health problems making you feel tired, anxious, frustrated, and disappointed with everything around you. This is not God’s desire for you!

“I’ve said these things to you so that you will have peace in me. In the world you have distress. But be encouraged! I have conquered the world.” — John 16:33

Today, I encourage you to take some time to sit down and meditate on God’s promises. He has promised to be your peace and will break down every wall of anxiety, frustration and disappointments. Know that you can take all of your cares to Him and He will give you peace of mind and rest in your weary soul.

The good news is that in this life, there will be hardships, but they only last so long. Be at peace knowing that it’ll all be over soon, and that God is in control.
