Peace family, when was the last time that you were overwhelmed with gratitude? When was the last time that you allowed yourself to just bask in the praise of God?
As I enter a new season in my life with my time at Peace 107 drawing to a close, I am overwhelmed by the goodness of God. He has brought me through so many things, he has taught me so much, and his faithfulness has endured even through times that I felt abandoned. He gives me hope for the future, and the harder that my life has been, the more I have seen real miracles that only He could have coordinated.
Thankfulness can really be a struggle sometimes. Sometimes, we can become so focused on what we don’t have, what we feel is owed to us, what we’ve lost, or what others have that we don’t have, that we make ourselves incapable of enjoying that which we really do have. A heart of gratitude and worship frees us and gives us a better perspective. It strengthens us to enjoy what God has done for us. It takes us out of a grasping panic, and frees us to be more generous with our time, talents, and resources.
The world can also fight against our thankfulness. Even well-meaning friends and family might continually point out to us the things that are missing from our lives: a spouse, children, a better job, health, and so on. For several years, I’ve had a piece of paper that I taped up next to my desk on which I wrote, “BELONGING TO CHRIST IS ENOUGH FOR ME,” and I would look to that piece of paper whenever I felt troubled by what I don’t have. Peace family, belonging to Christ is enough for you, too! God really is all that we ultimately need. Really!
If you are like me, maybe you get distracted in a big worship service sometimes. Why not do your own worship service? Turn off your phone, pull out your Bible and journal, turn on some praise music, and worship God, just you and him, in the privacy of your own house. If you can’t get time alone, invite your loved ones to join in!
Let’s thank God on paper and out loud for thing after thing that he has done and given, and tell our friends and family about his goodness. Give him credit where it is due. It seems like the more that I thank him for what he has done, the more I realize that I have to thank him for. It’s a beautiful, exciting cycle!
Peace family, God loves you more than we have the capacity to understand. He wanted you as his friend and family member, and he sacrificed of himself so that you could have those relationships with him. It’s a gift of eternal significance, and he blesses us in all kinds of ways, every day, that we never notice. Let’s not take that lightly. Let’s enter a season of thankfulness and joy and declare his goodness, love, and truth to everyone we meet. In that way, we will truly make a difference in the world! God bless you, now and always, Peace family!

Peace family, do you struggle with worrying as much as I do?
One of my friends recently posted this on her Facebook status: “Every time you’re tempted to worry, turn it around. Thank God that he’s taking care of that situation.” It really encouraged me, and I hope it will encourage you, too!
This was a great reminder to me that even when I don’t see God moving, working or healing, he is there, doing good things. Even if the way that he takes care of something isn’t the way that I think it should be taken care of, I can still trust him that he is good, that he has a good plan, and that he knows better than I do.
What are the things that we usually worry about? Problems that have happened, the unknown in the future, bad possibilities, and more.
Peace family, we must remember that what God has done for us is more powerful than anything that anyone (including ourselves) has done against us.
We don’t have to be held back by lies or sin that we have done, or that have been spoken over or done to us. Our destiny is not defined by our failures, or by the ways that we have been harmed. We do not need to worry.
Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” However, I can often end up worrying even in the middle of my prayers. I am learning how to not just thank him for all of the things that I’m thankful for, but to specifically thank him that he is working where I don’t see it. It is better for me to remember that I can thank him, and choose to believe that he is moving, and that he is more powerful and wise than I sometimes give him credit of being.
If you find that you are worrying today, take some time to thank God for who he is and what he has done. Thank him for what he is doing right now, even what you cannot see, and for what he will do! You can trust that he is taking care of your situation.

Peace Family, have you ever felt like all that you truly had left, was God?
After flying back to Texas from Germany on July 25th, I was pretty dizzy. I thought I was just extremely tired, but the dizziness didn’t go away, and in fact, it progressively got worse. It was so bad by last week, that I spent the weekend almost continually in my bed, drifting in and out of sleep. I was so dizzy that I almost couldn’t do anything but lie down with my eyes closed, and even then, I still felt like my eyeballs were spinning around inside of my head. I was not in any pain, but I was completely emotionally drained, I was physically incapacitated, and I was so dizzy that I had a difficult time stringing thoughts together. All that was left was the presence of God, and the darkness behind my eyelids.
Have you ever reached such a debilitating state?
After three days of almost complete helplessness, a friend drove me to my doctor, where I got some medication and learned that my inner ear, behind my eardrum, was full of fluid. By that evening, I started to feel a little better, but the whole experience was pretty strange. The fact that I got broken down to my core, helped me to gain some perspective that I hadn’t had before for some difficult situations that I had been struggling with.
Peace family, it’s funny sometimes how God chooses to answer our prayers. After feeling a little better, I remembered the Bible verse that says that God works all things together for the good of those who love him, who are called according to his purposes (Romans 8:28), and I recalled that right before I got so ill, I was passionately praying (pleading, really) that God would give me more direction for my life. I realized that maybe him allowing me to become so debilitated, was his way of giving me more direction. That’s not my preferred way of getting direction, but it worked.
Are there any areas where you are suffering right now? Are there any areas that are bad, that God might be redeeming and using for good? I want to encourage you to remember that God is with you in your darkness, even the most desolate darkness, even if no one else is, and I also want to encourage you to look for him and how he is working. When things are very bleak, and you are right in the middle of things, it can sometimes be impossible to see him. Just keep holding on. My prayer for you today, is that God would bring you through, and show you, even if it’s afterwards, the ways that He stood by you, and continues to stand with you.
