"And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:7

 This verse is constantly popping up in my life... believe me-I know how it feels to have a thousand racing thoughts and your mind never at rest. I went through a really tough season in my life. I know I'm only 20 so your probably wondering what could have possibly happened that was so terrible...but trust me when I say know how Job felt (to an extent lol) when Satan tried to get him to turn his back on God. It was like a testing period and it took a lot of out of me physically, mentally, and spiritually. My family was going through a lot ( and most of my family doesn't know what I was going through because I hid it), I started having health issues and kept getting weaker by the day, and I thought I was gonna lose my mind! It was so rough, but God is faithful! It is only by His grace that I made it through. During that time I had dreams and God spoke to me about my's pretty awesome...even though I was going through so much turmoil, God came and gave me a heart for worship and missions. One of my sisters went to a church and invited me and two of my other siblings to go with her. I had so much going on it affected my mind...but one night the pastor called for prayer so I went up and raised my hands. I didn't expect anything to happen, but when the pastor prayed for me God's peace just filled me! I had never experienced anything so sweet as the peace of God as I did that moment. The singers were worshiping and it sounded like angels! I remember I tried to put my hands down but I couldn't! lol God's presence was so strong that night! God gave me soooo much peace! All the anxiety and racing thoughts stopped. I was finally at peace!

 I'm not perfect, and I still struggle at times, but God is so good! His peace will help you through anything you face! Go to Him and receive! He will give you HIS peace! You can't explain it but MAN! It's so awesome!  :)
