Beautiful Ones, today’s word gem consists of three words making up one phrase: “blessed with peace.”
I know what you’re thinking “peace is a blessing?” It certainly is. Here’s how.
You ever have one of those days where wrong was the only right that happened in your day? The kind of day that made you rethink why you had children, started school, took on a new project, or volunteered to help on that assignment. We’ve all been there—some of us longer than others—but when those moments subside and all goes back to being calmer—more tranquil? Whew!
Doesn’t it feel like being wrapped in a warm blanket fresh out the dryer on a frigid day? Can you picture that deep exhale? That collective sigh of release with a sprinkle of relaxation and ease? That’s peace. That’s the blessing. And you know what? We’re happier for it.
The Lord will give [unyielding and impenetrable] strength to His people; The Lord will bless His people with peace.Psalm 29:11
And that’s not all. Peace in this passage denotes completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, as well as the absence of agitation or discord.
The absence of agitation or discord. Rest. Safety.
I don’t know about you, but this type of peace seems like the kind of thing we all need. It sounds like the kind of thing that would be a blessing to a weary soul. Like a fresh wind on a stale day. Wouldn’t you agree?
Blessings & love from my heart to yours,
