Plans of a Nation

7:34 AM

Did you hear about the passage of the heath care bill? That might be as stupid as asking; Did you know that most people have two eyes? Even if you don’t have a TV, radio, or newspaper, a neighbor or blogger probably told you.

I know that it is disappointing to many of my readers. Its passing probably made you angry, sad, frustrated, and maybe even a little scared. I know that I went through all those emotions but this evening I am at peace.

You know, peace is a very misunderstood thing. Many think peace is the absents of fear, chaos or any disturbance in our lives, however, that is not the case. Peace is firm belief that there is something bigger than ourselves that controls the events of our lives. Peace is more than a feeling that all is right in the world, it is the knowledge that no matter how bad things get, we have someone who will never leave us. Peace is not a land free of war and fear, it is a person that understands that no matter the outcome of the war, no matter how strong their fear, there is someone who cares for them

I hope that God will give you, the courage to lay down burdens, the grace that you need to go through what comes your way, and the peace that surpasses all understanding. Here are some verses that might help get you started.

The LORD foils the plans of the nations;
he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever,
the purposes of his heart through all generations.
Psalms 33:10-11 NIV
