Peace! Be Still! What Does God's Peace Look Like? It might not be what you think....

 Peace!  Be Still!  It was the command the Jesus gave to the elements when His disciples became afraid of the gale surrounding them...


He asked them what they were afraid of...
He asked if they still had no faith...

Is your faith in Him?

Or in your "faith" (thoughts, beliefs) about Him?

If your faith is in your "faith", you can only grow to the point that your own thoughts and beliefs can take you.

But if your faith is in HIM - He can take you beyond your wildest imaginations!

I am here to say, that after this experience, their faith in Him grew!

They became convinced:
  - of His love for them,
  - of His heart of compassion for all of mankind,
  - of His desire to do His Father's will
  - of their ultimate good always being His motivation for action 

  - of a purpose and calling from Him
  - of guaranteed uncertainty
  - of a life full of opportunities as they pursued all these things...


        ...of His steady, loving presence no matter where this adventure took them all...

And that is where the true peace of God begins...
...Faith in His loving presence that is working all things out for our good...
