A Yielded Heart

As I sat in my favorite chair, with my warm cup of coffee in hand on Thanksgiving morning, I thought of the many things I had to be thankful for. Always, at the top of my list is my gratitude for my life of peace. For the true peace that can only come from my Heavenly Father. A peace that I feel no matter what war may be waging on around me. We are told through John in 14:27 Jesus words, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid”. This is the perfect peace that is described to us in Philippines 4:7, “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”.  If you do not have this peace that I am describing, you now know that Jesus wants you to have it. Jesus is just a breath away. Invite Him into your situation, your day, your life. Jesus is described as a friend that sticks closer than a brother. If you have invited Him into your life and yet still cannot seem to feel His peace and presence, ask Him to reveal to you what is blocking you from feeling Him and the peace He has for you. Then ask Him to empower you to remove any blocks or obstacles. The funny thing about obstacles is, the longer you look at them the bigger they get. So, keep your eyes on Jesus, not the obstacles, and allow Him to show you how to navigate through them. Yes, you can talk to Him. Share with Him all that is in your heart, all that is troubling you. He wants to take you on a journey of discovering all the amazing gifts He has for you. He just needs a yielded heart.
