And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
***Today we celebrate Blog blast for Peace day. It is my first time to celebrate this day with other bloggers and would like to share the following thoughts of peace I recently read in my "Streams In The Desert" devotional.
Please visit Mimi Lennox's site to visit others who have participated in this special day at http://mimiwrites.blogspot.com/
Cushion of the Sea
There is what is called the "cushion of the sea." Down beneath the surface that is agitated by storms, and driven about with winds, there is a part of the sea that is never stirred. When we dredge the bottom and bring up the remains of animal and vegetable life we find that they give evidence of not having been disturbed in the least, for hundreds and thousands of years.
The peace of God is that eternal calm which, like the cushion of the sea, lies far too deep down to be reached by any external trouble and disturbance; and he who enters into the presence of God, becomes partaker of that undisturbed and undisturbable calm.--Dr. A. T. Pierson
"The Pilgrim they laid in a large upper chamber, facing the sun-rising. The name of the chamber was Peace." --Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress
~~~Blessings of peace and all that is good~~~
