Everlasting Peace

“ But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.” James 3:17 (NIV)

Life often revolves around drama: yours and mine. Good drama the kind that inspires , uplifts and embraces life fully is amazing.  Sweet stories of restoration, victories won and goals achieved.  But unfortunately, we often get lost encircling those things that seek to overpower our lives – drama that stifles.  Seeds of gossip,  judgement, anger, selfishness and restlessness grows into weeds that entangle us suffocating our peace.  So what’s a girl to do when reality checks in and reveals our thrill of drama has stolen our joy, destroyed our fruit and produced a hearty crop of discontentment? How about  a fresh cultivating of our hearts and minds poured out before the Master Gardener?  God is our Peacemaker and when we exchange our drama for sweet surrender, we will flourish.  As women, God knows our hearts are full of emotion and feelings. He wired us that way, but He never intended for us to let those emotions overpower us or to allow us to get caught up in someone else’s emotional nightmare. Bringing the unsettling areas of our lives before Him, we gain wisdom and sincerity rather than feed an unhealthy diet of strife.   By safe guarding our minds and hearts, God will produce an abundant crop of trust, faith and hope that rises above any drama – now that’s something to talk about!

“Father, how sweet to truly place our lives into Your hands knowing that You alone can supply all that we need.”

For His Glory
