There is a sweet peace that you can come into if you choose to.
It starts with trusting God.
It ends with trusting God.
We access peace by trusting God.
We take out things like anxiety and worry because we release control to the One who already knows how it will turn out anyway. We refocus our attention and energy on love. Love God and love people -> sound familiar? See Matthew 22:36-39
Matthew 22:36-40 English Standard Version (ESV)
36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
When we focus on that…you don’t have as much time to worry about what won’t work. Then you can entrust your plans (in pencil) to God’s Will for your life (Proverbs 19:21)
Don’t believe me? Try it. I dare you. Filter alllll you do through LOVE today. Vertical first and Horizontal second.. make a familiar shape? You can see it two ways… the + Plus sign, because adding more love to your life ALWAYS adds to you. Secondly, THE CROSS, which reminds us of the Grace gift of Christ. The way I see it, it’s a win-win.
I LOVE (AGAPE) YOU!
