Hello everyone! Today I decided to share with you guys my TOP 5 FAVORITE bloggers and blogs! Each of these blogs have helped me and brought me lots of entertainment for the past few years and you would be sure to love them too! Ready to discover YOUR new fav blog? Keep reading! ;)
Hello guys! How has your week been? My week has been crazy but I’m hanging in there haha. So, I decided to pop in and share some really exciting news! I’ve been wanting to do this for so long and I’m finally doing something I’ve thought long about doing. Ready to hear what it is? Because I’m just gonna rip off the band aid and tell ya...
What do you think of when you hear that word.
Do you picture a dove with an olive branch 🕊or the peace ☮️sign, or perhaps being in your favorite spot...in peace.
Now I don’t blame you because I think the majority of us think of those things or those similar when we imagine how peace looks like.
But I’m here to tell you what peace through Gods eyes really is.
Jesus left the disciples with this message soon before he would die on the cross. John 14:27 says “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”
Maybe your thinking “how can the world not give me this peace” “and why is God giving me this gift?”
Hate to break it to you but, we live in a terrible and broken world filled with sin.
The world including you and I often think that peace means no more sorrow and brokenness. Living life with no troubles (Hakuna Matata anyone...?)
But as awesome as that sounds, that’s not the kind of peace God gives us. Instead he gives us the peace that is able to withstand despite the bitterness of this world. This kind of peace allows us to transcend above our troubles, and it gives us a clear mind and peaceful heart and spirit in the midst of all the chaos and disappointments in life.
I’m giving you this devotional as a reminder to everyone, whether you’re going to school or have kids going into school, or maybe have nothing to do with school to just remember that God left us with a peace that does not mean no more brokenness but instead to fight and give us a pure heart and mind DESPITE those circumstances.
So I want to ask you, if you’re feeling distraught, broken, far from God, angry, bitter, or perhaps those close to you feel that way or similar. Remind yourself that you don’t need to ask God to get rid of those troubles, but to help you have peace going through those troubles and being able to rise above it all through God. Because in the end it’s all for a reason ;)
Thank you so much for reading this short devotional and I want to remind you that the reason I do this is for my readers, reading this very moment, yes, you! Thank you!
And I hope you can come back next week for my SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! Get excited and I’ll see you next time!
