I was thinking about Peace this morning. If we think about how Jesus said in the beginning “blessed are the peacemakers’ and later on he told the disciples (Apostles) to speak Peace everywhere they went……….and then he said a profound thing: “If they don’t receive you the peace will come back to you.” God intends for us to be at peace with people who do not receive us. Another passage of scripture says if we are righteous “even our enemies’ will be at peace with us.
This is actually a future thing (the Lion laying down with the lamb) and one of those “thy kingdom come” blessings. WE do not have to compromise our beliefs in order to be at Peace with those around us. Whenever I have what I would consider to be an enemy or someone “attacks me” I always pray God will bring peace. It’s the very first thing I pray for. What about you?

I was that "unpopular" wierdo kid, that didn't fit in anywhere, in High School. I guess I never knew my place in life, until Jesus took me in. I've been rejected, misunderstood, left out, bullied, abused, scandalized, and labeled. In 2002 I got on a bus and left a marraige of sixteen years, that was fraught with abuse and heartache. In school, I used to be so afraid to stand in front of the class and speak, my hands woud visibily shake, and I could not look at my audience without being terrified.
Years later, I find myself leading a school music production, speaking in front of churches, and walking around with confidence, because I know the King of Kings is at my side.
My ministry, prayers and blogs are directed toward those who feel like they were never enough. You never fit in.
If I can help you in any way, if you need a special speaker to speak hope to the hurting, or if you would like a copy of my Testimony book (Grace to the Rescue) let me know. I am here for you. I also have a new book out "Confidence".
With Love, Laura
