1. I love that verse about Paul, and the difference between him and most of us (especially me!) is that when God offered him grace, he took it! He didn’t keep looking for his thorn to be removed or any other thing . . . He took grace and then he spread it all over the place.

    1. Amen!! I often wonder why it’s so difficult at times for me to just accept the grace given but yet it’s so easy to take on a feeling of condemnation or allow people’s words to get into my spirit. I wonder if that’s innate or do we learn that over time as the enemy fires darts at us.

  2. Truth’s to set us free in the midst of chaos!! I know i have to depend on His strength and when I don’t, even the ordinary drains me. To be filled with His peace, His supernatural peace is amazing!

    1. Yes!! The ordinary can become draining when we try to depend on ourselves! I get amazed at how I can easily get overwhelmed by such simple things when I get out of sync with Him!

  3. This is the third time this week, the Lord has brought Phil. 4:6-7 across my path. I shared it with a friend facing heart surgery. The next day, rather than open heart surgery, she received 2 stints, and is going home the next day! Praise God!

    1. Amen!!! I love so much when God does that!! People who think God doesn’t speak to His people today just don’t know how much He truly does!!

  4. I love your use of Scripture here Diane! Tweeted & pinned. Thanks for linking up at InstaEncouragements!

  5. What a beautiful collection of scriptures just for this cause. I am comforted in His word. What a blessing to know that God is always there for us, during times of crisis or for every single day.

  6. Sometimes it seems all of life is chaos. In fact, I bought a tshirt on Monday that said “Chaos coordinator”! It seemed appropriate. This post really helped me today.

    1. It does seem that way doesn’t it? Love that t-shirt!! I feel that way so often!! I am glad you liked the post Lauren!

  7. This is so great! There are so many things going on in my life right now. I’m so glad God led me to this post. Thank you!

  8. I love it when God lines up our posts. I had a guest, Landen writing about peace this week on my site. Your words went straight to my heart, “The Lord goes before you! In other words, there is no place in life you will ever be that the Lord has not already prepared a way for you either to it or through it!” I love concentrating on the fact GOD is with me. Maree

    1. Amen!! God certainly has a way of getting a certain message out to His children when He knows we need it!! I love when that happens!! Thank you so much Maree!!

  9. Powerful Scriptures and great post, Diane! Super blessed to link-up with you today! Thank you so much for sharing and thank you for hosting as well! God bless you! 🙂
