Author of Peace



God brings order out of chaos even the chaos we create ourselves.  

If there is conflict and confusion in your life today and you lack peace, chances are you are looking at the relationship, situation, circumstance, decision that needs to be made, or the problem through the eyes of the world.  

Doing so brings about disorder, anxiety, anger, impatience and can cause us to lash out unlovingly at others.

But when you shift your focus through God’s lens His peace begins to reign in your heart.  

God is able to help you respond to others in love, in forgiveness, and in peace, and thus, maintaining peace with those around you. It’s your choice – you can live in confusion or chaos, or you can live a life marked by peace.

Proverbs 16:7
“When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”

Isaiah 26:3
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”

John 14:27
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

John 16:33
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Philippians 4:6-7
 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
