God’s Word on Peace: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. John 14:27

Wisdom Shared: When ever I see greens and blues I associate those colors with peace and sereneness …
When I was a teenager I attended summer camp in upstate New York close to the Appalachian Trail. Our group would go on two night camp-out each year, although I am not a fan of camp-outs I’d go with great trepidation and reluctance. Then as we arrived at the camp site, the beauty of the green mountains, serene lakes and streams under the blue summer sky would bring me peace. Then I’d relax and take it all in … I would wonder: What was I so afraid of?

It is pretty much like following Christ, before we become Christians and we receive the invitation to follow Jesus, we approach the throne with great fear and reluctance. As we draw near to the Father through Christ who gives us strength for our journey, we cannot help but wonder; How did I exist without HIM? Yes, Beloved, he gives us strength for our journey in the good times, the hardships and storms of life. But the word of God reassures us that his presence is within us through the power of Christ in us along with the Holy Spirit.

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
In Christ Love,
