"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Faith, Love & Peace

One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek Him in His temple.
~Psalm 27:4
Faith, now this is hard to explain to some that don’t have it.  Sometimes there are no words to describe it, all I can say is that I do have it and that I pray that I will never lose it.  That I will always have faith and always seek my Father, always love Him, trust Him and never leave Him again!  Because He NEVER left me! 
 
 
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
~Romans 8:38-39
and then there is Love.  Now that is something that is easy to explain.  If you are talking about your husband, kids or family, but again, to some they don’t understand the love for Christ or His love for us!  To me sometimes it is a very intimate thing.  Not like a lot of people think.  He is the one that I can go to when I need anything, He helps me through so much and gives me such peace.  I have never really known this kind of love before.  A love where is it totally unconditional, nothing like with my husband but a  love that so holy!  When things are going bad at home, just not getting the love from family that I need I can always turn to my Father for that.  I know it sounds weird, but when I feel like I am not being heard, accepted, supported, I can just dive into His words and I get such comfort from that!  Just by reading His words and His promises to me! 
That is Love!



And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
 ~ Philippians 4:7
Peace… that is what comes from having the things I listed above.  There is no describing it to nonbelievers or someone, like I used to be, that says they are a Christian, but still doesn’t have that relationship.  I never knew this peace really existed before!  Whenever my husband and I get into arguments, which are coming fewer and fewer Smile I used to just go and cry.  Don’t get me wrong I still do cry but now I cry out to our Lord.  It seems like as soon as I do, as soon as I ask, “What am I doing that is so wrong?  How can I be better for him and for You?”  There is this calm that comes over me.  Even when I don’t hear Him answer back, like this warmth, like a powerful arm around me telling me I am doing right by Him.  That I am at least understanding now that it isn’t always about my husband, that I know that I have to change things as well.  That He knows I am trying so very hard to hold my tongue and just sit and think and pray about it before I reply.  He knows that I am trying because He knows everything about me!  and He still loves me!  Now that is such a peaceful place to be!!  No better feeling than to know that He loves you and that you are beautiful to Him and are doing just fine!
