- free of chaos or strife
- being right with God
- being right with others
Lately, I have felt "not at peace" about a couple of projects. One I've been involved with for awhile, and the other was a new project I'd been offered. You know that uneasy feeling you can't get away from. I have experienced the uncomfortable feeling of being challenged and stretched by God when He calls me to something new as well. When I know God has told me to do it, I just have to step out in faith, beyond the discomfort. This time I wasn't sure if God was telling to do it, so, I finally let them go. (secretly hoping and praying I was making right choice)
Not too long ago, I accidentally visited a site I rarely go to, and I saw they were seeking pastor's wives to write devotionals for a book that will be given to pastor's wives at the SBC National Meeting in June. I thought, "I want to do that." So, I sent her my information, thinking they would never select me and forgot about it. Yesterday, I got the email that I will be writing one! I don't know my topic yet, but I have perfect peace about it. The "funny" thing about all of this, is every single project involved writing or speaking to minister's wives.
I couldn't help but wonder if it was in letting go of the things I wasn't supposed to do...that the thing I am supposed to do then came to me? I thought of the milk campaign, "Got Milk?" when I started to write this post. What sort of picture would illustrate, "Got Peace?"
My daily scripture yesterday was Proverbs 16:1..."We can make our own plans, but the Lord gives the right answer." (NLT) How timely.
So, how about you....Got Peace?
