The Perfect Kind of Peace

Yellow roses 2008 Garden (1)

       The Word has an amazingly simple solution for anxiety: trust in God, and find our anxiety replaced by a spiritual peace beyond anything we’ve ever experienced, or can even understand.

                          Think about this. Worry is actually prayer in reverse.
In Luke 12:6-7 it says to “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God: and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your minds and hearts through Christ Jesus.”

       So next time we’re tempted to worry and to be anxious about anything in our lives let’s take a look at a rose, such as this lovely Sun Flare rose from my garden, and remember this:
27″Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”  28″And why do you worry about clothes?  See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.  29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.”  Matthew 6:27-29
                                                                                                                                                                          Or any one of us can just look out our back door, catch a glimpse of a sparrow anytime of the day and be reminded of this:
6 “Are not five sparrow sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God.  7 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”  Luke 12:6 & 7 Amp.
