This is a visitor we had this summer to the farm, he/she stayed for about six weeks, just hung out around the house, and garden, roosting at the edge of the roof at night, leaving a calling card on the steps, which was my job to clean each morning. I didn't mind though, to me it was symbolic of peace I was amazed at how friendly he/she was, I thought a few times that it would perch on my wrist, instead chose not to. As quickly as he came, he left.
I call these "Gold Nuggets" from God, which He leaves me so many.
John 14:27~ "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
I am reminded once again this morning of who is in control. The peace that abides in every believer can not be explained, just the assurance that God is aware of all circumstances surrounding us, both personally and worldly. Just now, I am thinking of a children's song I used to sing, "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands." As a child when I sang this song I would envision God's Great big hands cupped with the world situated in them, with me in the center. This still holds true today.
May the peace of God, which passes all understanding keep your hearts and minds stayed upon HIM!
