Scriptures: Isaiah 32:16-17 16The LORD’s justice will dwell in the desert, his righteousness live in the fertile field. 17The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. (NIV)
Nugget: Peace is something I’ve been praying about lately (well more than lately!). I’ve been trying to take the time to reflect & regroup, knowing that God is the center of peace. In God, there’s no confusion & He wants His children to lead peaceful & fulfilling lives.
Even in our toughest & most challenging times, God is there. The peace that can only come from Him is what we need to seek. God wants us to walk, live, & be in peace. Why would we allow anything or anyone to take this peace away?
My mom would always say, “A peace of mind goes a long way.” How these words ring true now! In the peace of God, we find quietness, confidence, & so much more, even when things can be hectic around us.
Allow God to come into the places & situations you haven’t given over to Him completely; this is the only way to have true peace. The peace with Him & through Him is never ending!

“Peace is the deliberate adjustment of my life to the will of God.” -Unknown
