Philippians 4:6-8 (New International Version)
6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
I am so grateful to our Father for the peace He brings. I have found myself this week missing my husband more then I have felt before since this deployment began in January. And struggling with the thoughts of knowing that God is in control and He has the plan and purpose for Wayne being in Kuwait. So I get frustrated with myself for being lonely and questioning God.
It is totally amazing to me that in the midst of all of this inner turmoil is a peace that can't be described. How do people who do not know our Savior ever make it through?
I have been given the blessing this week of watching the Bukowski family go through an incredibly difficult time with the loss of their father and yet they have a peace and a strength.
It only comes from above.
Our God is a covenant keeping God and if you will come to Him "6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. He will give you the peace you so desperately need.
He really will!
