“LET THE PEACE OF CHRIST RULE YOUR HEARTS,
SINCE AS MEMBERS OF ONE BODY YOU WERE
CALLED TO PEACE.  AND BE THANKFUL.”
( COLOSSIANS 3:15 *NIV )

Friend in this world today it is hard for many to
find any peace at all!   Perhaps it was that way for
you before you accepted Jesus Christ.  
“BUT NOW IN
CHRIST JESUS YOU WHO ONCE WERE FAR
AWAY HAVE BEEN BROUGHT NEAR THROUGH
THE BLOOD OF CHRIST.”  ( EPHESIANS 2:13 ) 

And through our relationship with Jesus Christ we
have peace because 
“HE HIMSELF IS OUR PEACE.”
( EPHESIANS 2:14 )

Therefore Friend, have faith in God knowing that
He is in control of everything, and will help His Children
through any difficulty.  After all the opposite of faith is
worry, for it is written; 
“DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT
ANYTHING, BUT IN EVERYTHING, BY PRAYER
AND PETITION, WITH THANKSGIVING, PRESENT
YOUR REQUESTS TO GOD.  AND THE PEACE OF
GOD,  WHICH TRANSCENDS ALL UNDERSTANDING,
WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND YOUR MINDS IN
CHRIST JESUS.”   ( PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7 )

So Friend, if you aren’t enjoying the Peace of God
that surpasses all understanding right now, remember
the words of our Savior Jesus Christ, 
“DO NOT LET YOUR
HEARTS BE TROUBLED.  TRUST IN GOD; TRUST
ALSO IN ME.”  ( JOHN 14:1 )

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
