“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give as the world gives, so do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

~John 14:27

  11. Mitch, the Lord brought your face before me this morning and several times during the day. As I prayed for you I heard the words “Choose life” and I thought of times like when Abraham was asked by God to slay Issac on the altar, most of us would probably have said: “Satan, get thee, behind me!” That looked like a choice of death, not life, eh? If our Lord is asking you to lay down something precious right now or not, I haven’t been shown, but that is the direction my mind went in. I know I heard “Choose life” and I have prayed that you will know that you know the will of God and that you will do it. God bless you Mitch. You have delighted all of us by being you and most of all, you have delighted God. You are so gifted… Our Lord has given you “wow!” talent and you are using it for His glory. Thank you for giving your time, energy and love to bless us.
    ❤️Your Sister in Christ

    C. S. Lewis nailed it–again. I just copied this nugget of his wisdom in my quote journal. Thanks, Mitch!

  15. Yes, this is the peace that “transcends all understanding” (Philippians 4:7). As the world continues to veer way off course, we can be free of fear, trusting the Lord.
