Peace That Doesn't Even Make Sense

Everything is going wrong. Murphy is right, as usual. I'm trying to prepare for a trip but nothing lines up. Paperwork, travel dates, accommodations, equipment... all of it conflicts. Worse, I don't like travel or paperwork. I'd rather stay home.

Thankfully, I've got a bunch of friends who remind me that it's going to work out, that God provides, that I can take a few deep breaths and leave the stress in His hands.

They're right.

Philippians 4:6-7 remind me to take these things to God in prayer, thankful for how He has provided in the past. Doing so will, according to this passage, give me a peace that, really, doesn't even make sense. By all human measurements, this situation is very stress-worthy! But the peace of God is rooted in His ability to handle even this mess.

You may have this trust thing down pat. But I've found that God continues to stretch me--however little--so I have to continue to put ever more faith in Him. So I'm mostly preaching to myself here, but I hope you find the reminder encouraging as well: No matter what you're going through, bring it to God with thanksgiving, and His peace will guard your heart and mind in Christ.

That's the message to me today. And writing it down has helped--a little. May you rest in His peace, no matter what you're going through today, this week, or this year.

  1. HmmmMMMMmmmm. All this vague "stuff is changing at Sonlight" and "I am going on a big trip" is a little vague. I wish you could share! But praying for a smooth journey for you and great opportunities ahead (whatever they are!).

    Vague? Yes. <smile> More to come, Lord willing. There's a lot that is up in the air right now. My stress level continues to spike until I remember that I wrote this post and I should be taking it to God with thanksgiving <laughing>.
