Peace of God

Written by Valerie Garner

Continued from page 1

Byrepparttar time my friend arrived, I was truly at perfect peace. It was so strong, she even felt and sensed it, it was that tangible. We actually (and this is a miracle) had some tea, and had some laughs. I had times that I slipped from His peace, but when I turned again to Him for help, it was there for me. I found forrepparttar 127055 most part God carried me through that very difficult time, and guided my life's choices by His peace. Ultimately, we did reconcile. This type of peace is not based on circumstances. I had some ofrepparttar 127056 most precious times in my life from this place of peace. I really desire to live my whole life, from this place of His peace.

The old hymn called "It is well with my soul" was written by a man in a ship, crossingrepparttar 127057 Atlantic and stopping atrepparttar 127058 exact place where (I believe) 5 of his children had just drowned. He could sing with his whole heart in that moment of devastation "It is well with my soul".

That isrepparttar 127059 peace of God.

Sometimes God speaks (He createdrepparttar 127060 world into existence by speaking)to calmrepparttar 127061 storm (Mark 4:39), and sometimes He speaks peace to calm His people. 1 Corinthians 14:33 states, "For God is notrepparttar 127062 author of confusion, but of peace..." This kind of peace, drives out confusion.

What's really special is that God WANTS to give this peace to anybody who wants to receive it. It is an open invitation to ALL. It was for this reason that God sent His only son, Jesus Christ to atone for our sins onrepparttar 127063 cross. This reconciles us to Him, becoming that bridge to God where we can then receive His peace and forgiveness. When I received Jesus and came into this peace forrepparttar 127064 first time, it felt like "coming home." I also hadrepparttar 127065 feeling like, "This is what I've been looking for my WHOLE life, but could never put my finger on." What an immense burden lifted off to KNOW I finally was at peace with God.

This is a very simple thing to do if you wish to receive His love, peace, life eternal and all that He has. I'm going to tell you how because nobody ever told me and it caused me to search for years to find that part out. It's just offering up a simple prayer from an honest heart (you can pray this alone, and say it in your own words, but here'srepparttar 127066 gist of it), "Jesus, I want to know you are real, I want to come into peace with you and my Heavenly Father, please forgive all my sins I've ever committed against you, I want to be clean and made whole. I need Your love and peace in my life. I receive what you did for me. Thank you. Amen."

As I close this, I would like to leave you with a few more words of Christ, John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you, not asrepparttar 127067 world gives, give I unto you, Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Lastly in 2 Thessalonians 3:16 "Nowrepparttar 127068 Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means, The Lord be with you all."

Spiritual Hunger

Written by Valerie Garner

Continued from page 1

Hunger a blessing? YES! Forrepparttar hunger will cause us to turn to nourishment that is needed, in order to bring life. God our Creator, made every person with a need within our souls that ONLY HE can fill. His purpose is to bring life and bless us. When we try to fill that void with other things, it only leads to more hunger. It may bring temporary relief, like eating a bit of junk food that doesn't satisfy. Yet, our need is REAL food, food that nourishes and sustains us, gives us strength and life. If you are feeling stirred in your heart now, if you're feeling spiritually hungry, there's good news. John 6:35 says "And Jesus said unto them, I amrepparttar 127054 BREAD OF LIFE, he that comes to me shall never hunger, and he that believes on me shall never thirst." Psalm 107:9 says, "For he satifiesrepparttar 127055 longing soul, and fillsrepparttar 127056 hungry soul with goodness." Psalm 34:8 says, "O taste and see thatrepparttar 127057 Lord is good, blessed isrepparttar 127058 man that trusts in Him."

It is easy to get spiritually filled. Simply ask with an honest heart something like "Jesus, I'm hungry, please come fill me, I need You" or whatever is on your heart. Have a heart to heart talk with Jesus who WANTS to bless you and fill you. One thing important to notice...we eat food inrepparttar 127059 natural everyday, our need for food spiritually is daily too, simply come to Jesus and you'll be amazed!
