Sunday Thoughts...Peace

We light the second candle this Sunday on our Advent wreath...the Peace candle.

I had a lovely weekend until tonight when everything just sort of fell apart. So many things to handle, so many needy people in my lift and in my family. So, I find myself asking tonight, Lord, where is the peace?

In the quiet of the evening, I find myself thinking of trying to find peace in this world. There is no lasting peace here. Things can be great one minute and quickly turn before you know it. That's life.
So, we long for the Prince of Peace who came as a tiny baby to a hurting world. We long for Him to restore this world someday, bringing the peace that only He can offer.

Someday the Prince of Peace will reign and we will know His lasting peace. I choose to believe that promise.

I can't wait for the day when we will experience perfect peace. It is so sad that the world rejects the Prince of Peace. I am so sorry you are feeling overwhelmed at the moment. Sending you an armful of hugs, lovely Linda. Xx

From my hiding place
in the storm,
I answered you

Psalm 81:7

From His hiding place in the storm....He loves you.

You are right...there is no lasting peace as long as we are here on earth. Joy can be found in so many small things and we cannot rely on people but in Jesus and Him alone...and with joy comes peace! I pray you have a joyful and peaceful Christmas season, Linda! ♥
