I read God's Word, believed it was true, spoke it and meditated on it. I was planting words like Isaiah 26:3 "Him I will keep in perfect peace whose mind is stayed upon me."; John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."; Philippians 4:6,7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." And, after the planting, I received a bumper crop harvest of peace, and that peace continues to guard, sustain and keep my heart and my mind, even to this day - three months after my husband's passing.
Yes, I am a Woman of Peace. Perhaps, I am still a little more "Martha", than "Mary" - but, daily, as I purpose to break away to embrace Him, my Prince of Peace, and sit in His presence...just a little longer, then I will start to bear a striking resemblance to Him. Maybe, then, I'll become known as His 'Princess of Peace'."
Peace be with you,
