Peace to a Troubled Heart

Focusing on God's promises and trusting Him to do what He says, will bring peace to your troubled heart.

Are you going through a tough time? Are you absorbing yourself in Scripture?

Who would believe that Abraham and Sarah would have a son - and live to raise him to adulthood?

"And she said (Sarah), who would have said...." (Giving birth at 90-years of age to Isaac)

This verse struck a chord in the recesses of my heart this morning and I inserted my own name into the verse, "And Deborah said, who would have said..." (Fill in the blank with your own impossible circumstance)

Then I thought of countless friends I pray for every day and inserted their unique name and personal concern into the same format. It was another light bulb moment - God turning the mess into a miracle.

Doing the impossible is everyday business for God.

As we allow God to handle our big problems, they do not seem so impossible.

Faith Formula: Focus on God’s promises + Trust Him at His Word = Peace to a troubled heart.

This encourages my heart through another day and I wanted to encourage yours.

One of my favorite hymns:

"When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul...."

Don't make "impossible" part of your vocabulary!
