Let me start by saying I don’t always do all of these that I will share with you over the next several devotionals but this for me is the work in progress. I am Not under the law, The Gift of Christ was more than enough to make me wHOLeY as He Is HOLY – me “working out my salvation” is a Here and Now challenge for Peace, Hope and Love for others.
As I discussed in “The Peace Practices” I try to rid myself of certain things, and I rest in the things I can’t as I know God allows All things in my life for a reason.
The next step after many counselors, counseling centers, and 2 Psych hospitals in my earlier days that I have found important is My Daily Plan.
Outside of work what is my Plan for Peace? What do I do that will help augment my Peace?
Even Jesus left the maddening crowds for a while at times. Do I plan family time where all distractions are off and we share moments? Do I go for a walk someplace where I enjoy the scenery? What about an encouraging book? If you like I can recommend many.
The main point for today is Plan time for the experiences and activities I will share with you in the upcoming days – Make a Personal Peace Plan and work your Plan.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
God has a Peace Plan for you – now go, pray, listen and create the structure – leave time early in the morning when you first wake up and just before bed – you will know why tomorrow.
