His Peace

Proverbs 2:6 (MSG)
And here's why:  God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding. 

Here's why the Fear of God will be ours....(the verse carried over from yesterday)...because He doesn't charge for wisdom and you don't have to have any degrees to understand Him and His knowledge!  So, I asked Him today:  Why the Arizona event;  Why the Haiti tragedy; Why the loss of life in Australia; Why cancer;  Why.......why.....why..?

And the answer was clear and simple, but it didn't take the pain of my aching heart away.  It didn't solve the problem of people treating life as a simple piece of trash that they can sweep under the rug.  The answer didn't take away the breaking heart of the mother who has to face life without her child.  It didn't take away the widow's lonliness and despair....but the answer was simple. He gently reminded me of His Word in the first book of the Bible~Genesis.  There it was!  The story of a fallen world....and then He gently reminded me:  John 16:33 (ESV):  "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation.  But take heart; I have overcome the world."  Praying for those who are hurting today to know Him and His peace!


  1. I just happened along to your blog via a comment you made on another person's blog.

    This post made me cry for different reasons. I love the simple wisdom that the bible offers. Thank you for having bible verses lead your posts and help people explore the verses for themselves.
