I have many pleasures, but one of my greatest happens to be a cup of coffee and great conversations. I use to enjoy the crowds, festival and other cultural activities. However I find myself not as eager to be a part of those things. I’m more reserved and willing to find a nice coffee shop where I can enjoy watching the very nature of people.
I have seen some characters while sitting around a table enjoying my morning Joe, and have heard some pretty good conversations too. Right now, the conversation around town seems to be politics, and vacation. Many people are curious to know the direction of our Country. All I can say is the feeling in the air is very unusual.
I can understand why there are so many concerns with all that’s happening around us. I too feel alarmed by the continuing cycles of destruction, and carnage. Yes my friend we live in a very troubled world. However, I have peace in knowing that God is in control. He is a refuge in time of trouble, he is a very present help in all the unrest. Today I’d like to leave you with a few encouraging words for the times that we live in…..
John 14:27-Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let them be afraid.’
John 16:33 -I have said these things to you that in me you will have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
God Bless 🙂
