TEEN TALKS THAT MATTER By Ashley Stevens
PEACE FROM THE LORD
Are you struggling in your life right now? Are you searching for peace? Peace from the Lord is a treasure from Heaven. The Lord purchased this peace for you and I through the Blood He shed on Calvary. You are able to receive this gift by just simply trusting God as your Lord and Saviour. Then, through the midst of life’s storms, you will have peace beyond understanding and full of glory. Not the peace this world has to offer, but sweet peace of knowing that whatever trials and tribulations you experience, He will see you through. The Lord’s peace is like a bright and golden sunlight shining on you, regardless of the storms that rage around you. When you are blessed with days of continuous sunshine, the darkness of your surroundings will grow dimmer. However, on days that may be darker, the Lord’s peace stands out in your circumstances. We can see these days as opportunities for His light to shine in us. The Lord is teaching us each day to practice peace so that we are able to overpower darkness. Never grow weary and lose heart. Continue to thank God when things aren’t going your way because spiritual blessings can come wrapped up in trials and tribulations. Rejoice in the face of hardship, for the Lord has overcome the world. Don’t mistake God’s patience for His absence. His timing is perfect, and His presence is constant. He is always with you even through the storms.
Until next time, may God bless you each and every day. Ashley Stevens
