I am at peace most of the time, but sometimes I catch myself in a funk of one sort or another, and I almost always wonder how I got there. More and more, what I’m realizing is, I didn’t get there, I went there.
The peace of God definitely transcends my understanding, but it’s one of the things—maybe the biggest thing—I’m hoping for. And, I’m beginning to realize it’s available to us all the time, and the only reason we don’t have it all the time, is because we choose not to.
Yes, it’s okay to feel and experience emotions. If there’s a reason to be sad, it’s healthy to let the feelings in (or out), as long as we don’t let them stay too long. It’s okay to take a trip to Sadsville, but we need to make sure it’s a roundtrip ticket.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
