There’s a lot of things that you can’t buy in life…
Peace is one of them.
So are things like hope, purpose, forgiveness, and love (pretty sure the Beatles got that one right).
Fortunately, peace isn’t as elusive as we think though.
If you’re a worrier like me, you can trade all the worry and anxiety that weighs you down today for God’s peace.
You can trade something that no one wants (all the things that weigh you down) for something that everyone wants (true peace).
This is too good to be true, you say.
There’s gotta be a catch…
Or, some fine print somewhere that makes this trade a bad deal.
And, I suppose there is some fine print, because this deal only “works” if you pray to the only One who was able to buy peace (and hope and purpose and forgiveness and love).
Just like me, you have a choice to make today…
Will you let worry and anxiety weigh you down? Or…
Will you pray to God and make that trade for peace?
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7) (NLT)
