whitehorseSunday was a break-neck speed day. We went from worship service to one good activity after another. I was worn out. Stress was close on my heels.

I want to live my life, at whatever speed I must, filled with the peace of God that passes understanding. I know it is possible. The abundant life is mine. Stress is a part of my life because I allow it to be. Christ offers his peace.

Why then do I have to remind myself to live in his peace? I want days filled with down time. I suppose many of my days are. I don’t do real well without it. However, there are days where that is not practical or in everyone’s best interest.

Those are the times when I am reminded that I live, not by own strength, but through his strength. He is my strength. For I died, and my life is now hidden with Christ in God. Col. 3:3

My life is hidden with Christ. I am hiding with him. There are definitely days when I want to hide!
