  1. I think of the past 2+ years and at times it seem surreal. I don’t know where I would be without my faith and family. While weekly zoom services were not the most satisfying, I watched the clock on Sunday mornings until it was time to gather. I don’t know how I would have gotten through without my family of faith. And while there still is so much grief and sadness in this world, and at times it seems like things will never get any better, I take comfort in knowing I am not alone. I think about all those who have no spiritual connection, no God to go to, no faith. For me, the harder my life has gotten, the more I rely on my faith. And while at times of weakness I question the sanity of this, I question if God really listens to me and cares, in the end I take comfort in Jesus and the words of the scripture.

  2. Oh my just exactly what I was praying last night, that I need His peace in my life right now. It feels as though the storm is raging and I am so worn from trying to stay afloat. Thank You Lord for blessing me through this beautiful post! I love the prayer and am hanging onto it to pray over and over until it’s in my spirit.
    God bless you!

  3. Peace is one of the fruits of the Spirit and a promise to us from the Lord, ours to claim each and every day in a troubled world, and I think it shows the evidence of God working in our lives when others see us having His peace.

  4. Mary thank you for this reading. So true. There is world out there of people who would when Covid set in and the cost of living say we’re are you God that you didn’t stop this happening. They probably are the people who say why should I believe in the Good who is supposed to be able to do anything. That lets this happen and lets people loose loved one. But we that are saved have to not think like them. We have still find peace and trust God he is there in the mits of what was going on in the time of Covid and in our world today. Continue to tust God even if we don’t seem to see any thing change in those times when Covid was bad and what going on in our world today. That can be hard. We have stand on his promises no matter how hard it is to tell people who don’t believe God promise in his word are true. God does keep them. Even if we are they don’t see God hand doing something. We still have to believe he is in control. As we have to believe as saved the kids song that I was taught in Sunday school. It is “He got the whole world in Hand and he’s got me and you brother in his hands” So he has even if we don’t see it Got us and the world in his hand. I still do and during Covid stood on all the promises of Psalm 91. As it says in verse in verse 10 and 11 “No evil shall befall you Nor shall and plague come near your dwelling For He shall give His angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways” I believe that.

  5. This is me to the t. I am in a space looking for peace but all I seem to find is caps and loads of stress. I pray every day it will get better but seems to get worse.

  6. When I think about the last 2+ years, my heart grieves at all the injustice and lies we have all been subjected to. For the harm done by the unnecessary restrictions and non-evidence-based ‘interventions’… to those with non-Covid physical and mental health conditions, to businesses and livelihoods, to our children’s education and development.

    Even in Christian writing, it is as though only covid matters and the massive collateral damage from unjust government intervention is ignored. It is evident that our battle is not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers that seek to bring us down. I am reassured that God’s truth will always win through and we are starting to see that now, thankfully.

    My husband is a senior academic clinical scientist who worked in the UK National Health Service for over 30 years and he has been distraught at how the truth has been suppressed, how those in power have let that power go to their head, and how the disadvantaged have been disproportionately affected. But our God is a God of justice and is on the side of the poor. His truth, justice and mercy will prevail.

  7. Grace,

    The past two years have been hard on everyone. Our country has so much racial tension & disunity. We are supposed to be a United States not divided. Asking God to send His peace the only peace that transcends ALL understanding to everyone.

    Blessings 🙂
