i’ve made peace elusive, especially this past week. - no matter how many times God reminds me of His promise for deep, sincere peace, i’ve tossed it aside. - every time He’s approached me this past week, a loving smile on His face and His arms full of peace for every disarming moment, every jolt of worry, i’ve turned Him away. - no matter how tightly i hold to my worries and pride, He pursued me. despite all the missed deadlines and lost keys, despite all the moments when I held to small, sinful worries, He holds out His arms again. - a word of encouragement: we’ll mess up. He won’t.
