Dailies~ In His Love
May 2019
 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; Hebrews 12:14-15
Strive for peace with everyone. It does not come naturally of course because we are humans after all. We are basically selfish even if we do not admit it to ourselves we live with our own lives in our minds at all times.  Then we work at thinking of the others first.
Being blessed and not stressed is something that I have made my life motto, it takes work at working to feel blessed in the middle of a mess. You have to look for things to find encouragement sometimes. I cannot do it myself but God can! I strive to, and try to live at peace with everyone, and in the middle of stressful situations it is not always easy. God’s Word comes to us when we need it. The only way it can come to us is if we hide it in our heart, if we read it often and study to show ourselves approved rightly dividing the Word in truth…
Its like what is a common statement today, “know God know peace”. He alone can live us the peace that passes understanding in situations beyond our control.
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Or in another version it reads; All scripture is divinely inspired and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be complete fully fit to every good work.
In John 16:33, Jesus says ‘these things I have spoken to you that in Me you my have peace, in the world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer! I have overcome the world!’ 
In another scripture, Mark 4:39 he says “Peace be still”. We can remember when the world comes at us and our friends become distant. When you can’t find a job and the rent is too high. Peace be still! When your life plan goes haywire and nothing fits the mold…Peace be still! The storms will come and go but God says Peace, do not worry for He is! He is with you in all you do, even to the ends of the earth!                                                                     
Heavenly Father, thank you for your peace! Help me to be still and just listen to You. In Jesus name, amen.
