“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” ~Philippians 4:6-7
“If a person has not experienced true peace, the peace that comes from God, the peace that the world didn’t give and the world can’t take away kind of peace… that person won’t value your peace! Peace is unfamiliar and foreign to them, therefore they are not going to respect the way you value peace, and they are definitely not going to make an effort to guard your peace!
As for me, I’m guarding my peace and joy in the Lord because I value it as a precious gift, I respect it because of the gift Giver, I cherish it because I’ve experienced a time in my life when I didn’t know of the peace of God. But, oh how I remember the precious glimpse beyond the veil that graced me to know and experience the peace of God!”
Be blessed! Love you all.
