I am amazed!

How is it possible to feel an astounding peace when troubles swirl around us, when situations would make us feel anything but peace? It's the presence of God in our lives. That's the wonderful gift every child of God has access to.

I say we have access to such peace because, even though it is ours, we have to claim it. It is choosing to believe and trust God when storms swirl, when the enemy tries to destroy and believing God is at work when we can't see it.

Such peace makes you say, "Okay, Satan. You and your cohorts are trying to destroy my peace but I won't allow it. I claim the power of God in my life. I lean on the "everlasting arms" of God." Such a safe place to be! Such peace. A peace the enemy does not have!

Peaceful in the arms of Jesus, Gloria

The "peace that transends all understanding" really does! It is truly amazing how the Lord takes care of us.

Gayle, how true! I can't imagine life without God and am amazed at those who blatently reject him. What they are missing!!
