Peace?? You mean that's possible??

#1 God answers prayer.
#2 You just never know how the answer will come.


We've been hearing a lot about peace at Crossroads Baptist lately.  Pastor Brandon has been teaching from Colossians 3 on the "roots of peace"* and the Lord's been very challenging me.

I have peace...I mean, I know where I'm going when I die, and I've learned the hard way to trust Christ to provide for all my needs.

BUT, like other things in life (running being a major one) I like to take things to the next level.

I wanted to have God's peace at a new level in my life.

SO, I started praying for it. I didn't know how the answer would come because I really didn't know exactly what I was praying for. I knew my house would still be filled with loud, easily excited children, and I knew that I would still spend my days in piles of laundry, dishes, and dirty diapers, but I was hoping for a new, overwhelming peace to be in my heart.

I was also hoping for a day of rest. (Ha!)
