I feel so safe, snuggled into a warm corner when the wind is whirling and howling. So safe, that I really don't want to leave. Outside of my corner I experience misery after misery. People's quarreling and fighting tires me so much that I feel little fitted to act as a comforter, for I need comfort myself. I have tried to help others to have peace until I am afraid of losing my own. Colossians 3:15-17, "...you were called to peace. And be thankful..." The Peace of GOD, not the "peace" of indifference. The Peace of GOD is the settling with finality all questions that arise in our minds. We can't have Peace of GOD without Peace WITH GOD, that is the only way to live in harmony with GOD, with ourselves and with others. To give thanks as you sing psalms (a song of Christian worship), hymns (a song of praise) and spiritual songs (used for the preservation of GOD'S Word through all generations). If the wind didn't blow and trials didn't come, I would have never experienced the POWER OF PEACE and I would be afraid to leave my warm corner!
GOD IS GOD!
