Can I talk about the subject of peace enough?

Peace - something that many people speak of, but do they really know what peace is? Have you ever felt true peace? I have to be honest and say that the definition of peace is ever-changing in my life. Each time struggles come up in life and I truly surrender them to the Lord I find a greater peace than I have known before.
Tonight we had an awesome prayer meeting and with change on the horizon in our lives and a good bit of uncertainty I am truly at peace. To have my Pastor and members of my church praying for us and God's discernment in our lives was a little overwhelming for me tonight. The old me - the controlling me :) - never experienced this kind of peace. God is in control and that is much, much better than me being in control. Him I trust - me not so much! Human nature will always plague me, but His perfect wisdom and will for my families lives is what it is all about. So not to ramble - have you experienced peace? If not pray for it, seek it, it is an awesome place to be cradled in God's secure grip. ---- Blessings!
