The Eternity Wreath –  PEACE

THE PRINCE of Peace gave us peace. He gave us Himself.

“On that day [when that time comes] you will know for yourselves that I am in My Father, and you are in Me, and I  am  in  you.” John 14:10

HOW deeply rooted in my heart is the Prince of Peace?

 

P
PRAISE. When I praise the Lord in the midst of the crazy and the storm, it’s hard to stay ‘un-peaceful’ inside. I choose to lift my voice and speak or sing praise to God, who gives us the reason we celebrate this season. Psalm 59:17

E
ESCAPE. What am I trying to escape during this busy time? Playing computer games, eating and drinking to escape is merely numbing; nothing changes. I choose to escape into peace through praise and prayer. Philippians 4:6-7

A
ADAPT. Do I have to have things my way this year? What would happen if I let someone else plan the Christmas dinner or decide where the family should meet. Am I at peace enough to let go of control and prefer another? Perhaps I need more praise and prayer. Proverbs 12:15

C
CHILDLIKE. Enjoying the simple things relaxes me. Making a paper airplane, coloring a picture, building with Legos™. Singing the old fashioned winter songs about Rudolph and Figgy pudding, or eating a graham cracker house cemented together with white frosting. Who cares what it looks like?

E
EASE: the absence of difficulty or effort (online dictionary). Whose mind can I ease with a word of hope or treating them to lunch? Whose pain can I ease by sending a card or flowers? This week I’ll be on the lookout for the friend who is not at peace. I will make a difference in his/her life. In Christ, I have peace. And His peace in me is supernaturally contagious.

Grace and peace to you this week!
