Smiling in Spite....November 28, 2012 0 Comments
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
Christmas season is a time of joy, time we exchange presents with our loved ones, a time we celebrate the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ and to my children time to have a birthday party just for Jesus!. It is also the loneliest time of the year to those who have lost a loved one, or recently divorced or separated, perhaps homeless or just without hope. You simply cannot see any light at the end of your tunnel and become desperate for an answer, for a solution.
The bible tells us that this world we live in is a life of pain, darkness and turmoil, BUT TRUST ME, I will give you peace to soothe your mind, your worries, to attack the anxiety and overpower it with surreal peace and harmony.
So why not give it a try and TRUST JESUS, have faith in Him unburden yourself and Smile in the face of your worries. Remember the Joy of knowing JESUS is your PEACE is a strength, to overcome and to move on fixing your eyes on Jesus in expectation that HE will make a way. Always remember the story of Joseph in the bible, that God planned his end from the beginning and even when the beginning was rocky, he came to realise God's good plan for his life in the end. I pray for you my brother and sister that Your tears today will turn to dancing tomorrow IJN.
