“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” —Isaiah 9:6
For most of my life, I have dealt with a great deal of anxiety, stress, and a genuine lack of peace. It seems genetic to some degree because a large number of my family members suffer from those things also. However, those negative feelings have increased over time due to some traumatic situations . For instance, I was involved in two bad car accidents. God miraculously saved me from death or serious harm, but the memory of the accidents have caused me extreme anxiety while riding as a passenger in cars.

When I first accepted Christ as my Savior, a great peace settled on me. I stopped suffering from anxiety and could go to sleep almost anywhere without worrying about a thing. As time passed and negative thoughts encroached, the worry and anxiety had returned. Any time a pastor mentioned “peace” or I read a Scripture about peace, I would talk to God saying things like “The Holy Spirit lives in me. Where is my peace?” or “If you want me to have peace, then give me peace.”

One day, I opened a daily supplement I had been taking to promote stress reduction. I heard the Lord say, “I will heal you.” Lightning did not strike at that moment. In fact, I pondered it in my heart during the next two days. Then I woke up and noticed something had changed. God’s wonderful, all-consuming peace had settled on me. It has been about a month now that I have enjoyed the fruit of the Spirit called peace. God did exactly as He promised and healed me. If you suffer from anxiety, please join me in the following prayer.

PRAYER: Lord, We come before You today with the knowledge You can and will heal Your children. We ask that You would lift off anxiety, stress, and worry from anyone reading this blog right now and their friends or family members. We ask that You replace it with Your wonderful and all-consuming peace. Thank You, Jesus, that You are willing and able to do this for me and others because You love us so much. We welcome Your Holy Spirit into our bodies and yield to His leading. We praise You, oh God. In Christ’s Name, Amen.

every day brings each of us brand new challenges, and feeling at 'peace' 100% of the time
in this 'fallen and decaying world' is always one of our hearts greatest desires as we
continue on in our journey to serve our Saviour...

His 'peace' is always available to us, but in order to continually abide in this blessed state,
we must pray constantly to over-come the physical and spiritual battles that beset us
and actively use this most precious gift that can only help us to continue to walk in
His most precious Light'...

Thank you for sharing your testimony. I am sure it will be a encouragement to all who read it. We do serve a awesome GOD. Most of us spend our lives either going into a storm or coming out of a storm. Praise him who can calm the storm. I am sorry to hear about the storms you have had in your life but you know now that GOD was, has and always will be with you. GOD's peace is available to everyone. Praise GOD that you have accepted his peace. Amen
