A sweet friend of mine and her husband took me out for a birthday dinner. We've been trying to get together now for months and it's been long over due. It would seem that everytime we'd try to get together this last year, so many obstacles jumped in the way. But what I loved so much about about this gathering was the unintentional meaning behind these sweet flowers I was given.
Sometimes we believe that we've got to be perfect and things have to be in order before we can have peace. That is a bold faced lie! Most of my life has been hard. I'm not talking about hard because i was bullied at school or hard because I experienced multiple traumatic events or had a breakup or even the fact that I suffered all kinds of abuse growing up. I'm talking about hard in the sense of not having Jesus in my daily walk. It was hard because I was not taught where to find peace and who to find it in.
I've learned that we can go through much trauma, physically and mentally, in life but its in that torture that we can have still peace; if we know where to look for it. Where do you look for peace? In God's word. He gives very clear direction and support when we need it most. It is the only place that will give you the resources you need to handle any circumstance you go through and it is the only place where you'll be able to find out who you are at the deepest level.
