    If I am brutally honest, the one thing I desire more than anything else is peace. The ability to joyfully accept my current circumstances and not let the things I can’t control upset me. To be at peace with other people rather than at war with them (Romans 12:18). To accept that the government authorities in our country and the world have no authority except from God and they only exist for his purposes (Romans 13:1). To dwell only in His Kingdom.

    I know the path to the “peace that surpasses all understanding” (Philippians 4:7). I know that I am on that path and that I am making progress, albeit painfully slow in my view. I even think I know what stands in my way, because I see him everyday when I look in the mirror. What I still struggle with is surrender and submission, to focus only on Jesus Christ and to not be distracted. Lord show me what I need to do or how to allow you to do to me what it takes for me to go deeper in my relationship with you.
