Sometimes, God is downright humorous!
Yesterday, I planned to start a new series on peace. Key word: planned.
Stress was the word that defined this “supposed to be peaceful” weekend, ending in me having to stay a day longer due to a mechanic breakdown…without internet access. Ha! How is that for a stress-less and peace combo!
While I sat in the place I didn’t want to be, I looked for peace.
In the morning, it as an adventure of sorts and even into the afternoon, I kept looking for the positive. What might God might be up to? I practiced Isaiah 26:3 “You will keep in perfect peace who mind is steadfast, because he trust in you.”
As evening approached, my body began to grow tired and so did my heart. As I finally approached home, in the dark of the night, my weary heart stopped fighting for peace. I grew weary, completely loosing the peace I had been holding on to. I caused my family to loose their’s as well.
Thank the Lord; His forgiveness and help are new every morning. (Lamentations 3:23) and His peace is never far behind. Today is a new day and I am thankful!

Do you find that when your body grows weary, your emotions do to? What do you do to help you keep peace when this happens?
