Incomprehensible Peace


Peace is something that we all seek.  Something that this world needs more of.  We can try to create it - in our homes, our relationships, at our jobs.  But no matter how much we want it, and try to make it ourselves, it's something we can't find outside of the One Who IS peace.

We live in a fallen and depraved world.  But God is a God of peace, not of chaos.  And He sent His Son, the Prince of Peace, to bring eternal peace to us.  He gives us this peace internally, regardless of what the world is trying to give us externally.  No matter what forces come against us, His peace surpasses all understanding.  It's supreme, unchangeable, never-ending.  And it's ours today.  Only through His death.

God never leaves us gasping for breath amidst, what we think, is chaos.  He is always in control.  He doesn't allow things to happen to us that is more than we can bear.  And if we think it is, His strength and peace are only a prayer away.

'For God is not a God of confusion, but of peace...'
- 1 Corinthians 14:33

'Peace I leave with you; My peace I give unto you.  Not as the world gives, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled.  Neither let it be afraid.'
- John 14:27

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, peeps.  I've been away from home, across the country - in Pennsylvania, to be exact.  I return to Oregon on Wednesday, so from then on, you'll be seeing more of my own writings.  I hope you've enjoyed the guest posts though:)

  2. Miss Raquel, I love reading your blog! You are an inspiration! I myself have only been blogging for couple of years, but would love to reach and encourage people through my writing. I feel it is one of the ways that God has called me to ministry. Although I love to write, it is always difficult for me to write things that I feel are worth reading. Anyways, I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing another young lady that is striving to live for God. Thank you.
