WFW~~Pursuing Peace......


My Word-Filled Wednesday post this week is a picture I took at the Lake last weekend. I chose a verse about the peace God offers because that is exactly what I have been craving recently.....

What I love about this verse is that God does the work (sanctifying).....I just have to allow Him to do it!

In an unstable world that encourages tolerance and conformity my prayer is that I will be receptive to God's sanctifying work in me. Only then will I be able to know the peace and hope that is found in Christ! I truly don't know how people get through the day (much less a lifetime) without it!

Below are a few more of my lake pictures. It really was a wonderful (and peaceful) weekend!

Kelley! I am so glad you are back to posting again. :) You are looking so good in these pictures - what a fabulous time.

Debbie said...

You wrote something I think is profound...God does the work but we have to allow Him to do it. How many times do we try to do the work? I'm learning to rest in Him. Your picture with the verse looked very peaceful and lovely. The other pictures looked like a lot of fun!!!

Looks like you had a fantastic time! Happy Wednesday!

Rhonda said...

Sounds like a wonderful weekend!

I'm jealous of the obvious warmer temperatures you were having. We've now got our furnace on and there was some frost on the ground. Even some snow about an hour north of me. :(

Chatty Kelly said...

Since there were no men in pictures...who baited your hook? LOL!! I can't fish unless my hubby is there to bait the hook and take the fish off.

Looks like a great trip!

Rachael said...

What a fun time you must have had. Kudos on filling your tank with something great. Glad to see you back--thought you were asleep on the blog.

Jenny said...

I thought I left a comment here yesterday. Oh my! Nonetheless, there's one scene of a deck that looks so peaceful. It would be my favorite spot if I was there I think.

You definately are gifted with not only creativity, but a way with expressing your thoughts. It is important for us to know how fill our "tanks" or experience "burn-out." You have really inspired me. Thank you for all your sharing. You're a blessing!
In His amazing love, Vicki<><
