“For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely his.” —II Chronicles 16:9a

Peace Family, what helps you to have hope?
Something that God has really been impressing on my heart lately, is that we as Christians can have hope despite living in a hopeless world. It’s easy to look at the world and circumstances around us and feel discouraged, or even despair. However, the fact is that those evils have no real, permanent power over us. We have Christ as our eternal hope and can always trust in him. We have hope for our futures, because we know that while we are alive, God will never stop his work in our lives (see Philippians 1:6), and we also have hope that there is life in heaven after our physical, imperfect lives in this world.
Anytime that you are feeling stolen from, your joy is killed, or your peace is destroyed, that is the work of the devil (see John 10:10). We can recognize that those are his methods. We can intentionally remember that we have confidence in Christ!
If you need to bolster your hope today, there are several things that you can do.
Remember to arm yourself with the armor of God: the Helmet of Salvation to protect our minds and thoughts, the Breastplate of Righteousness to protect our hearts, the Belt of Truth to surround our core, the Gospel of Peace to equip our feet, the Sword of the Spirit to help us discern and act, and the Shield of Faith to extinguish the fiery darts and attacks of Satan (see Ephesians 6: 10-12). Remember that (as my friend Hannah recently reminded me,) we have to dress ourselves! No one can put your armor onto you for you. So, take steps to strengthen these areas and protect your hope! Protecting your hope is vital, if you are going to be an effective, encouraging, truthful, and encouraged believer.
Additionally, if you are feeling hopeless, read the Bible (when nothing else is sticking, Psalms is my go-to book of the Bible,) and especially, make time to spend time with other believers, particularly in prayer. This is so important! There is something so powerful about praying together, and although when we feel “off,” it’s tempting to isolate ourselves, that makes it so much easier for Satan to attack us. There’s no such thing as a “Lone Ranger” Christian. Jesus says that we are a branch grafted onto a vine, and Paul says that we are complimentary body parts of one body. In both of those illustrations, life is impossible apart from the whole.
Peace family, our prayer and hope for you today is that you can have hope! Don’t be afraid to fight for your hope in Christ. Hold onto it, and let it carry you through your day.
“ For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.” —Matthew 16:25
Peace family, all summer long, we are so excited to have our Peace 107 Peace Pals on Tuesday mornings from 8 to 9!
Our second Peace Pal, 7-year-old Paxton from College Station, was a wonderful friend to have in the studio! He told us all about soccer, his favorite breakfast foods, asked a question about dinosaurs of our other guest from Moody Gardens, and he even brought a package of conversation topics to help us stay on our toes!
We really enjoyed having Paxton as our special guest! We can’t wait for our next Peace Pal, next Tuesday on Peace 107!
Peace family, while Brian Christopher is on vacation, we are so excited to have Hannah join us from time to time in the mornings!
Hannah writes for our Peace 107 magazine and does editing. She is an amazing woman with a huge heart and a lot of compassion. Hannah, welcome to the Peace 107 morning show!

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.” —Psalm 28:7a
Peace family, are you stressed today? Do you have a few minutes to be still and quiet in nature?
Over the weekend, I was dealing with a lot of stress. There were so many projects, so many responsibilities, and so many plans swarming around in my head, that I started to feel pretty overwhelmed!
I asked friends to pray, and I tried to read my Bible, but the stress was oppressive. However, I got some breakthrough when I drove down to my parents’ farm for Father’s Day. I passed rolling, green hills, covered with grass. The sunshine shone through white, fluffy clouds. I passed red and black cows, full and satisfied, and grazing horses. I looked at the large and spreading trees in different shades of green.
You know what, Peace Family? God made all of those things. As I looked away from the highway, across long expanses of land, it helped me to rise out of my panic mode and think about the humongous God who created and maintains all of these things.
Peace Family, if you’re feeling stressed today, can you take some time to look at nature, maybe take a fifteen minute drive or a walk, and think about how great God is, and how much bigger he is than all of our problems?
Nature relieves my soul in a very specific way. The Bible often talks about how mature points us to God, how the thunder and the trees praise him, and Jesus himself said that if we failed to worship God, the rocks themselves would cry out (Luke 19:40.)
Nature is always praising him! Let’s take time to listen, today, Peace Family!
