Follow the Path That Leads to Your Peace

Years ago while searching for my first home, I found what I felt was the perfect house. When the time came to put down money, I backed out. Why? I did not have any peace.

If you do not have peace about that relationship, job opportunity, marriage, purchase, move, divorce, or whatever decision you are about to make, DON’T DO IT! WAIT!

TRUST your instincts. TRUST what God is speaking to you about that situation. It may not make sense now, but TRUST that He knows what is best.

It was hard walking away from that house. However, a year later God led me to the home I would buy. Not one that seemed perfect, but the one that was perfect and hand-picked for me. Looking back now, I’m grateful I walked away from good, because I ended up with God’s best for me.

God loves you (yes, YOU)! That pause, or hesitation, you feel in your spirit may save you from heartache and disappointments. It may mean He has something better. Or, it may simply mean it is not time, yet!

WAIT on God! TRUST His timing and follow the path that leads to your peace!

Peace does not always mean an absence of fear. Sometimes on the path of peace you may feel afraid, or uncomfortable. I was afraid when I walked away from the first house, and was afraid when it came time to put down money on the house I would buy, but I had peace.

Peace comes in TRUSTing God no matter how we feel, or what we feel, because we know He is in control and He will take care of us.

Most of 2015, there was a specific thing my husband and I prayed for. We spoke it, and believed God would do it in 2016. Well, it happened, BUT it does not look anything like we imagined.

I think God has a sense of humor because He gave us what we wanted, or so we thought. We didn’t count the cost of what it would mean for this thing to happen. We didn’t think through what our life would look like if it happened.
