And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15

Christ longs for us to receive Him. But, sometimes we wake to hurried moments in our lives and forget to welcome calm. We race ahead without the strength of the Savior and wonder why we struggle in our days. Now, more than ever, we need to remember Jesus IS with us. He wants us to discover the power of His love and learn how it feels to trust. 

Sometimes, we try to move ahead on our own. We worry when things don’t happen as planned. But, Christ leads us back to the Father. The gentle Shepherd cares for His flock. And, when we are lost in struggles of doubt, He pulls us back where we belong and demonstrates the love of His faithfulness. 

While we are carried in strength, we recognize who is working in our days. God demonstrates the power of His love and covers us with grace. He holds us in calm, humbles our hearts and nurtures a prayer of praise when we have recognized the need for His mercy. 

The Bible says, “And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans. Romans 8:28 TLB

Now, more than ever we need to remember God IS with us. Regardless of the circumstances we face, He is HERE! If we take time to seek Him before we choose to rise, He will arm us with EVERYTHING we need to face the day. 

God will lead us back where we belong. He will set the stage for what’s to come and honor the love of our faithfulness. HE is a good, good Father. He will fill us with peace and help us remember why we should always be grateful. 

Dear God, Thank you for moments to be reminded who is working in our lives. Forgive us when we forget who is handling our days. Help us find peace as we honor You with  praise and begin our prayers with a grateful heart. Amen
