Peace Out! 2/1/17
Peace Out! 21/1/17




Colossians 3:15 (KJV)
15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.  

As I was leaving a delightful lunch date today, the last topic my dear friend and I discussed was THANKFULNESS-BEING THANKFUL!

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)
18  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

SMILE! Please forgive me but somehow/I DON'T KNOW WHY-my mind ALWAYS reverts to some obscure song, this time The Beatles-"BACK IN THE U.S.S.R"

" YOU DON'T KNOW HOW LUCKY YOU ARE, BOY!!!!"

Last night, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a post on FB of pictures of an ANCIENT letter and STAMPED envelope dated sometime in 1951-65 plus years ago!

The picture of myself as a baby-crying and whining- was depicted as well as a picture of my YOUNG mother and copy of her HAND-WRITTEN birth announcement.

We don't know/understand/appreciate "how lucky we are, boy!!!!"

WOW! Can you even imagine announcing such great news today via snail-mail!!!

Today, we can INSTANTLY show major events in our lives via all kinds of various apps!!!

TWITTER, SNAP CHAT, FACEBOOK, TEXT, EMAIL-the list goes on and on!!!

TODAY, people are living longer and better than ever before-especially those who "LET the peace of God rule in your hearts!!!

Colossians 3:15 (KJV)
15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
Does not our God PROMISE us:

Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)
3  Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.  

David boldly declared to "MARK the perfect man and behold the upright......."

Psalm 37:37 (KJV)
37  Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

WHY? Because the "END of that man is PEACE!!!"

And is it not PEACE that we all seek????

PEACE is the exact opposite of STRESS!!!

Perhaps it is high time that WE cease singing about "PEACE IN THE VALLEY SOMEDAY" and enjoy this PEACE now!!??

Jesus PROMISED:

John 14:27 (KJV)
27  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

TODAY, may all who read this message heed these Words:

Psalm 34:14 (KJV)
14  Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

PURSUE IT-a primitive root; to run after (usually with hostile intent; figurative [of time] gone by ) :- chase, put to flight, follow (after, on), hunt, (be under) persecute (-ion, -or), pursue (-r).
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

I leave you with this:

Philippians 4:6-7 (KJV)
 
6
 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  

7
 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

PEACE OUT!!!

GOD BLESS YOU!!
