At the age of 25, I woke up each morning feeling lost and abandoned into a difficult situation. After a year of desperation, I began to search for God in a new way. I was desperate. I needed something, someone to hold my hand and walk me through this hell on Earth, and I found Him. God was always there, He never left, and He saw me when it felt like no one else did.
With God by my side, I found a way to live in Contentment and Peace amidst the storm. Although I was living life within a whirlwind, “He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. Mark 4:39”.
So it was with my heart.
My head and my heart learned a new meaning of PEACE, and a new definition of JOY.
It is this same Peace that He gave me during that storm that I long for now. As I walk through this season’s new set of trials and storms, it is that same sense of PEACE that I am longing for.
Maybe you feel the same?
As I encourage myself, maybe I’ll send some your way as well. Gina, spend time with your Father. You are designed for intimacy and relationship, and you are made in His image. He desires closeness with you.
HE is Peace. So if HE is with you Gina, He will impart Peace into your heart. Dwell in His presence.
