So. we have had more problems with our neighbors. We are now going to be moving by the end of the month. But as I was telling my mom about everything else that has gone on in the last couple days, she asked if we had been praying about all of this. I told her that I have been, mostly because I was too embarrassed to tell her no. I am working on making that the first place I turn to, but it’s still a work in progress. Then she started talking about having peace, in spite of your trials. Peace is something that I know about, but I don’t know a whole LOT about. So I have decided that I am going to start doing some research on peace, how to get peace, and how to maintain peace. Whether I have peace or not isn’t going to affect if we move or not, we are going to move purely for our physical health, mostly my husband’s health, because this is such a stressful situation and has fast become a situation that we cannot live in. But that will not affect my ability to find peace.
I know that God has promised us His peace every day and that’s what I want. So I am going to find out how to get it and keep it. And I am going to make a more concentrated effort to make prayer my first resource to talk things out, rather than my last.
Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you. He will never let the righteous fall. Psalm 55:22
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
The mind of a sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were clued to peace and thankfulness. Colossians 3:15
God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.
The Lord gives strength to His people; the Lord bless His people with peace.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition and with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the pear of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7
