Verse of the Day: Philippians 4:7
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Everyone deals with stress now and then and some people deal with it on a regular basis. Meditating on God’s Word and praying plays a big part in dealing with these external stressors.

Put your trust and confidence in Him and let the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, bring His peace into your life.
Verse of the Day: Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed, by the faithfulness of God’s Son, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Are you living a life focused on yourself, a life without purpose or peace? In order to get to where God wants you to be you have to leave your old life and your old ways in the past. Surrender your life to God and focus on the future He has planned for you. Christ now lives in you and you don’t have to live by your own power or strength anymore. Start living by faith in Jesus Christ who loves you so much He died on the cross for you.
Verse of the Day: John 14:27
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

As we come to the homestretch of the Christmas season and all the hustle and bustle that comes with it pray for peace in your heart and in the hearts of others. True peace is the gift of God to those who keep Him in their hearts. Don’t let yourself get consumed with presents, instead focus on God’s presence. It’s not about the presents it’s about His presence.
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. The other day I was talking to someone 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.
