It’s the most wonderful time of the year! AKA this is the craziest time of year! All the hustle and bustle, running around, financial strain! It’s easy to get wrapped up in the crazy. When it’s overwhelming and I can’t bring my mind to peace, I rely on the one who IS perfect peace. You know how in Galatians 5:22-23 it says, “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” It took me a long time to realize that I didn’t have to lean on, or create, my own peace. I could lean on God’s perfect peace. So when things are out of control, everyone is asking for a piece of me, my calendar is packed and I’m pulling from savings, I stop down and ask God to give me His perfect peace.
Do you need that today? We can pray it together! “Lord, I can’t handle all of this on my own, I’ve tried cultivating my own peace and it is not working out for me! Please fill me, to overflowing, with your perfect peace. The peace that surpasses all understanding. Quiet my mind and my heart. Give me the faith to know that you are going to take care of all my needs. Thank you for being so good to me! In Jesus’ name I pray, amen!”
Phew! What a load lifted! Give God your heaviness this season, you know He’s strong enough to carry it! And here at Star 99.1, we’ll make sure to remind you of that truth! With songs that point you back to peace and stories that inspire you to trust Him!
