Ain't God good?.....

I've had the word "peace" on my mind a lot lately.
It's shown up in a lot of devotionals and scripture,
and I told somebody just recently that I'm glad that, for the most part,
my life is very peaceful.  Oh, I know, we all have struggles and trials, but I think I came to that realization trying to help a family member who has so much turmoil and drama going on that I really don't see how they bear up under it all.
(although, a lot of our problems are self-induced.....
can I get an Amen?!?!)

I have a best friend.....
Ms. Dawn!!!
She knew that my heart has been heavy with the death of my friend, Teresa!
I went to the mailbox yesterday.....
and look what she sent me.....


I was already smiling and giving God the glory before I even read the inside.....


I wondered if she was picking out the perfect card about the time I was thinking my thoughts about "peace"!!!

Isaiah 26:3
You will keep in perfect peace
    all who trust in you,
    all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

Thank you, Lord for Your perfect peace,
that You give to my imperfect heart.
Thank You for letting us see Your hand at work.
And, thank you for ordaining friendships.....
especially with my bestie, Ms. Dawn!!!

Ain't God good?
Oh, yes He is!!!

Breathing in Grace,

Deb

  1. Yes, He certainly is. As He has worked in the heart of your friend Ms. Dawn to confirm the word Peace in your heart while you miss your friend Teresa who has passed, so He will work peace in the life of your family member. Hugs to you.
