word of the year...

we have been studying peace in our life group. i decided to make it my focus for 2010. i have been purchasing ornaments to hang in my home as visual reminders.
there are so so many ways i do not show peace or feel peace. in my dealings with work and at home. in my head thoughts...worried, anxious, fearful about illness, hurt, pain, death. place everything at christ eternal is the acronym i came up with for peace.
when i don't trust, i show a lack of faith. i show i that i want to be in control.
oh Lord, i know when you are in control, my life is what YOU want it to be, which is infinitely better than what i could ever come up with.
"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me...Peace I leave you; my peace I give you." John 14:1 & 27
