The Peace of God will guard your Hearts and Minds!

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.

Philippians 4, 4-9


Skip your Christmas wish list,
that gorgeous sweater, the latest device.
Go on. What do you most want?
What do you want more than that?
If you got it, would you be satisfied—
or is there something even deeper?

Now dwell on that.
Stay with it.
This is your true Christmas wish,
your deepest longing.
Let it be earnest prayer.
Carry it around with you.

Imagine your deepest desire
is wrapped up in God’s
and let that give you deep, deep peace.
Don’t try to understand it: it’s beyond that.
Just let it be.

God is holding this.
