10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 5: Thankful for God’s Peace

Colossians 3 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 3:15

Let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts and always be thankful.

 

Today I am thankful that I have God’s peace in my life.  Not long ago, I was talking to a friend who was telling me about all the stress and drama in their life and afterward all I could think was, “Thank God I have peace in my life!” It wasn’t always this way though, through the years I’ve learned to trust in the Lord with all my heart and I’ve learned to let go and let Him have His way.  I know that God is in control and the closer I draw to Him the more peace I have.
