stories about life and God

peace.

i’m often described as happy-go-lucky, laid back, fearless, etc etc(though not many people at ciu have seen me that way yet). my mom actually says i’m a very emotionally healthy person and wishes she were more like me.
ha. this is not me.
i worry. i do NOT trust people. i’m afraid of just about anything you can think of.
but, today in chapel they talked about peace. true peace.
i like the idea of that. i have it at camp. i used to have it at church. i have it at beth’s or leighanne’s house, and sometimes i have it at ciu.
this is what i learned this morning. now this verse is on my wall, and it’s one of my favorites. i thought i got it, but i didn’t until today.
don’t worry about anything. instead pray about everything, and the PEACE of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.–philippians 4:6-7
so basically, if we would just pray instead of freaking out, then this peace that’s so big we can’t even understand it, will stand in front of our hearts and drive away all incoming fear, doubt, worry, stress, and any other potential crap that could come in and mess us up.

peace. perfect peace.
