“… the Lord blesses his people with peace.”
This time of year the word ‘peace’ brings the Nativity scene to my mind – as in, Sleep in Heavenly peace… But the peace God offers reaches far beyond one image. He desires for me to have peace with:
– Him (experiencing a restored relationship)
– Others (being reconciled, especially in the church family)
– Myself (accepting Who I Am, with honesty and humility)
– Circumstances (embracing the season or situation I’m in)
I’ve come to crave this kind of peace. But I can’t create it on my own. Thankfully, God is more than able to bless me – all of us – with it anytime.
