The Difference

"Peace is not the absence of trouble, 
but the presence of God in the trouble"Sheila Walsh 

This weekend I spent two wonderful days with 7000  at the
Women of Faith conference.
One of the guest speakers was Sheila Walsh, a wonderful woman of God and author from Scotland. 

There is no way to condence her sharing into a few words but the Lord truly is using this woman to bring the promises of God to light in womens lives.

She shared that peace has become a trendy word again, as it was in the 70's.  But true peace used in John 4:27 uses the greek word  ειρήνη  that means 
"Total well being and security because 
God's presence is with you."

There is a place where peace can always be found.  
At the feet of Jesus and with His promises we choose to hold onto.

The bigger the trouble the faster you should run home to Him.

Blessings, Debbie

I have been running to Him very much..and He is always there.. we never have to fear we will miss Him or He will be away.. The painting of Him hugging the little girl is so beautiful. I wonder if you did this?? God Bless. Crystal Mary
