Peace in the Midst of Fear

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Phillipians 4:7, NKJV)


That's what I heard as I was sitting on the couch preparing to have lunch. "Grandma, Grandma!"

No Answer.

Once she finally recovered, she stood up. Boom! She's out again, and once again no answer when calling her name. It turns out that due to what we think is dehydration due to the flu, she fainted 3 times. Once I was able to calm down, while sitting at the hospital I had a tremendous peace. I knew that no matter what happened from here on out, it was going to be ok. Ladies, do you have a situation today that you need God's peace? Are you fearful? We were. Our family was fearful of the outcome. I want to take you to a God who will supply you with peace. He doesn't force His peace on you, He offers it for the taking. Will you reach out and take it today?

Dear Lord, thank You for your peace. Thank You Lord that even in the midst of fear, you bring Your sweet peace and assurance. I ask that for each reader, bring them peace like they've never known before. In Jesus Name, Amen.


  1. I am thankful that God showered you with his sweet peace during this stressful time. One thing I have learned this week, God is my constant in an everchanging world. His peace is such a sweet release. Thanks for sharing this. Love you.

  2. Precious Friend,
    So grateful for the peace that passes all understanding in present times such as this and for the promise His peace will continue to guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Praying for a speedy recovery for your grandma...and that your heart and mind will continue to be peacefully strengthened.

  3. Wonderful post,Jamie. YOu're right about God's peace. He offers it to all of us, but we have to accept it. It's there for each of us, in any situation. Especially important and relevant these days.

  4. Thanks for sharing your heart with us Jamie. We can all talk about God's peace, but when we SHOW His peace in action it becomes very real and attainable. Praying for your grandma. Love you!

  5. Love the post! God is so good to show us his presence when we need it more. Blessings on you and your family.

  6. WOW, Jamie - what a scary situation! I'm glad God covered you with His peace as you waited for some answers. And I'm glad your grandmother was ok. Praying for a full recovery!

  7. Praising God that your grandmother didn't get seriously hurt and praise Him for surrounding you with His peace!
