Peace! My hope and prayer for 2010 is for Christ's peace to saturate me!! This was also my theme during December~ it seemed like everywhere I turned I saw the word "peace". It was strange to me, because December and "peace" do not go together in my book! I think the Lord wanted to prove me otherwise, though. I am praying He will continue to work His peace within me this new year!! The other day I came across this excerpt from a devotional ~It was just what I had been needing to hear~ such encouragement!
"...receive My Peace. This is still your deepest need, and I, your Prince of Peace, long to pour Myself into your neediness. My abundance and your emptiness are a perfect match. I designed you to have no sufficiency of your own. I created you as a jar of clay, set apart for sacred use. I want you to be filled with My very Being, permeated through and through with Peace. My Peace, which lives continually in your spirit, will gradually work its way through your entire being." (Jesus Calling)
"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 troubles and do not be afraid." John 14:27
Have a Peaceful New Year!!!
