No Price Tag for Peace

Today in feeling some anxiousness over a number of life situations, I took a very short road trip to a beautiful setting. I have visited this remote place before which I personally called “the church in the wildwood.” As a sat on the porch swing overlooking the clear-flowing brook cascading over the rugged rocks, I saw life abounding through God’s creation.

Sounds of singing birds, a gentle breeze, and aquatic life popping up from the water enhanced my tranquil visit. My concerns melted under the sunny skies, leafy-green, shade trees and gently-rushing, clear creek. Just the sound of that creek helped to lull me into a mode of trust and peace amidst multiple questions. In spending just about an hour in that haven of rest, His presence there brought me thanksgiving and meditation upon His Word.

One cannot put a price tag on peace.  The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, affords us that peace through a vibrant relationship with Him. In pursuing His peace, one can experience true solace especially in stormy times; no Jesus-no peace.

Isn’t it time to seek true peace that comes only through the One who promised it? (John  14:1, 27)

About Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering

Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering shares the true story about a sudden family tragedy. As author of the book to be published in the summer of 2014, the true account tells of my sister being rear ended by a drunk driver. She barely survives the high speed crash being left to live as a quadriplegic. Written from a brother's perspective, the manuscript shares the heartfelt story of ongoing physical and emotional pain experienced by both victim and family. Only through God's grace can a family survive such a tragedy!

    Martin, Our only price is to give our minds over to the Father; this is what you did when you allowed (purposed) yourself to be present in Elohim’s surroundings. This is where our will enters in to play.

    Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind (will) is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3 King James Version (KJV) Your message was greatly on target. Isaiah 26:3 is our way to perfect peace…shuting out the world.
