"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we a have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand."
Romans 5:1-2
"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."
Colossians 3:15

The only way I can experience the peace that passes all understanding is when I am surrendering everything to the Lord. The moment I realize that I am not experiencing His peace is the greatest indication I have that my ego is fighting to regain control of my life. The good news is that I have learned from years of trying to be in charge that it is just not worth it. I am the most content that I can be when I have relinquished everything to Him. The serenity that I experience when I am facing adversity enables me to think clearly and hear Him speak to me in one of the many forms in which He communicates. I pray that God will help me live continuously in His presence, aware of the peace and joy that is mine because of my inheritance as one of His children.
