Peace I leave you, My peace I give to you. I do not give to you like the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
Aren't error messages on your computer frustrating? For those of us in the baby boomer generation we remember the error messages on our television sets back in the 60's would reading "Please Standby. The Trouble is Not In Your Set". Oh the joys of technology whether new or old. In cowboy days wagon wheels broke. Whatever time of life a person lived in I am certain there were frustrations that came in their time as well. We get to a point that our peace is disrupted by simple messages such as found in my title.
How is a person to achieve peace in a chaotic non stop world? The answer is simple. Get away, take breaks, breathe, and do not squeeze God out of your daily existence. Many may call themselves a Christian but their minds are far from Him. How do expect to feel peaceful and close to God when you rarely spend time with Him? As a reminder, I just wanted to point out the enemy,Satan, tries to keep us overloaded and busy because then excuses are made why there is no time for God. He's just for Sunday, then for some nature will do just fine. After all He created it. What's your excuse?
Wherever you are today in your walk with God, if you are experience the frustrations of daily living take time daily to give Him time and see if things don't get better.
PRAYER: Oh Lord open my eyes to things in my life that are causing me frustration and lack of peace. Help me as I learn to re order my priorities daily making sure you are first not just in words but in my actions. In Jesus' name. Amen.
