“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6,7
I just had to cry listening to this woman, not because of her pain but because of her peace – it reminded me so much of how I was drawn to Jesus – thru the peace on a woman’s face during worship on a Sunday morning 12 years ago. I wanted what she had.
How awesome to see the peace only Jesus can give in the midst of the most horrible experience, how merciful of God that neither she nor her daughters were present when this man was murdered, how amazing the forgiveness that is possible because of what Jesus did for us.
God is good.
