1. Hi Sarah, isn’t it funny how we hear the word ‘peace’ and often assume it means that we’ll be free from trouble and worry. What you’ve found through your Bible study clearly shows that that’s not what God had in mind. As a matter of fact, Jesus warned us that we will have trouble, yet He encouraged us to take heart. I think when we focus on Him as the encourager and become one with Him, as you said, that’s when we can experience peace. Sounds like this will make for a great study. Thanks for sharing.

  2. The peace of God is mentioned quite frequently in the New Testament, isn’t it? I’m so glad that Christ desires peace for us. I was just reading about his calming the storm (after sleeping through it on the boat) this morning and I thought about how much power He has and how He can do this for our hearts too! I feel that’s why He did that.

    Sounds like a great study, Sarah! Peace to YOU! And thanks for joining us at Tuesday Talk again!

  3. Wonderful study you are embarking on!!

    I found such encouragement in the words you shared, “I believe the peace we are to grow is a quietness of our spirit, only achievable through being one with the Lord. As we grow closer to Him, abiding in His Word, peace washes over our hearts and minds allowing us to remain quiet in the midst of the unquiet of the world.”

    I leave your blog feeling edified. 🙂
