Ahh, so we move into this second week of our Advent season, continue on in our preparation with Hope in our soul as we light the candle of ‘peace’ in our anticipated waiting. With so much going on in this world of ours, it’s hard to fathom any kind of peace anywhere, isn’t it? For sure not in this wide world is there any kind of peace and certainly not in ours!
Today, there’s most likely a whole bunch of us just aching for some kind of peace of mind that everything is ok and will be ok. Luke 2:14 tells us of a host of heavenly angels singing their song to shepherds, to announce His birth and share a glorious message of calm assurance! It was a powerful yet tender message of a Savior’s birth and about His sweet peace resting on His people in this unsettled earth of ours.
Glory to God in the Highest, because on that holy night a Savior came to gift us not only with Hope but with a divine PEACE and bring it close to our hearts, our minds, and into the very depths of our needy souls and selves. Peace, yeah, It’s really there all around us all wrapped up in our Trust in the One Savior of the world. We need to step into it and just believe! It’s in our complete trust that our peace takes root. Pure, simple TRUST in Him shuts out the fear of the unknown! It cancels out the worry of what’s next and quiets the noise of chaos, because, as His child, we can know He holds us and our stuff, close to Himself as He whispers sweet peace to our soul.
