“When we are anchored in trusting God, the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit fills us with a perfect peace and uncontainable joy no matter what we are walking though, and hope is released.
I’ve used this as a gauge in my own life to keep me on track. If I do not have joy and peace, it’s simple: I have stopped trusting God, and I need to get my focus back.
We have to pause and realize that our lack of peace is not because our lives got hard. It’s because we cut ourselves off from the source of true peace by fixating on the mess. When we fix our eyes on the One who is the source of unending and perfect peace, fully releasing to Him all that we are walking through, He fills us with hope as we rest in trusting Him, and what overflows out of us is an unshakable joy and peace without end.
Trusting God releases His peace into our lives no matter what is going on around us.” -Life is Muddy
