(Press your way through)

If you could have nothing else – would being at peace in and with yourself be enough?

A deep abiding peace.

RIP – rest in peace – but not beneath the earth – for when that comes – there you are – no more.

Peace. What is that to you?

Here’s what it is to me –
Calm mind, feeling of satisfaction. Contentment. Sense of forgiveness. At rest with yourself and your maker. Taking God at His word – relying on His promise of the gift of Eternal Life through heart acceptance of His Only Begotten Son.

A peace that passes understanding. Given to you not as the world gives. Walking with God, not letting your heart be troubled.

Carrying a yoke that is easy and a burden that is light.

Learning from the Master (The Lord Jesus Christ).

All of this is part of the abundant life that Jesus offers. Press your way through the crowd and touch Him, by faith.
Matthew 9:20-22
20 And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. 21 For she said to herself, “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.” 22 But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And the woman was made well from that hour.

  1. Ken, this is a wonderful description of attaining the peace that only God can give. It is tragic that billions have rejected this offer of peace. For me, when things are going tough and I don’t really know how to pray, I just say, “God, please fill me with Your peace that surpasses all understanding and I will be content with that.” I usually find that this is my most effective prayer. Thanks for the great post.
