Sandy was a young woman whom my wife and I met a few years ago. At 36 years old, Sandy had been married three times, and had six children. She had recently ended a relationship, she said, because her boyfriend would choke her and beat up on her.
Sandy said she loved her kids, but they didn’t want anything to do with her. “I need help,” Sandy told me. “I’m so confused, and I just want peace.”
Wow, talk about a woman in need of the Lord’s direction and wisdom! I had a long conversation with Sandy, and eventually ended up leading her to the Lord, which was the best decision she could make!
Many people, like Sandy, are searching for peace of mind and heart. But the only way to have true peace is to have the mind of Jesus Christ, which happens the moment you receive Him into your life.
Romans 8:6 tells us that “the mind controlled by the Spirit [of God] is life and peace.”
Receiving thoughts and direction from God, through the Holy Spirit, is the only way to live! Is there someone in your life looking for this kind of peace? Take a risk! Tell them that the only way to experience true peace is through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
