Words of Encouragement

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  ~ Phil 4:7

Reflection
God gives us a peace that is able to transcend all understanding and will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Because we have been given peace with God, we are now able to experience the tranquility that He offers to His children. This peace is the product of prayer, petition, thanksgiving, and the presentation of our requests before God as it is described in the previous verse (Philippians 4:6).

Bill & Gloria Gaither’s “Because He Lives” has been on my heart all day.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone.
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living just because He lives.

Isn’t it wonderful that even when we are in a valley God’s love and peace will find us there and we can face tomorrow because He lives!
