“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15

Her heat, cheerful nation kitchen was a beautiful place to sit down with a espresso and speak about life.


The picket plaque on the wall spoke volumes.

“Be calm. Be strong. Be thankful.”

Jill made the phrases come alive as she shared among the hardship and deep grief her household had endured. Within the midst of the moments, as she walked, this focus held her gaze and gave her an unusual steadiness. But it was not rooted in her personal capacity to be sturdy. It was a lot deeper. The phrases on her plaque helped her shift her focus to let the peace of Christ rule in her coronary heart.

I realized a lot from my buddy.

We are able to transfer towards Jesus and His peace, or we are able to proceed in turmoil within the midst of the surprising.

When uncertainty creeps into the day by the information, a telephone name or some surprising circumstance, let’s be challenged to let these phrases shift our gaze to Jesus, and select to let His peace embody us. As we do, His calm and His energy will fill us. He’ll give the braveness to hunt thankfulness, even when its arduous to search out.
