"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

Don't be anxious, trust the Lord and with humble prayer make your reasonable request known and by doing this you will have peace from the Lord. Not just any peace, but peace that surpasses all understanding.

Have you ever been in those situations that can be devastating and maybe they are at first but then you really truly give it to God and say " It's yours Father, your will be done."  and then all of a sudden this amazing peace and joy covers you?

It covers you so much that not even those little whispers can't get in? It truly is an amazing feeling. It doesn't mean that the situation is over, it doesn't even mean that it will end up the way you once thought, but it does mean that you will be grateful exactly where you are (even if it's in a pit) and you may not even want to leave this trial for the next because it's right here where you can see the Lords sweet face.

And yet, I have to keep learning this over and over and.......

Either way I am thankful.

"Humble yourselves, therefore under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time He may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on Him because He cares for you." 1Peter5:6-7


  1. Yep, been there, and am there at almost every one of B's checkup times! It's so amazing how the Lord can bring that amazing peace, and the enemy try to snatch it away with the littlest doubts too!!! Our God is greater!!! Praising God with you for the peace He's brought to your heart!

  2. Me too Melissa. He does not weary of us. He is so gracious, long suffering that I cry in repentance always. I am so grateful.

    There is nothing greater than knowing Him. Paul testified to that when he wrote in Phil. 3:8 "I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my LORD."

    I love you Melissa.

  3. I like to think of that as the calm after the storm.
