Isaiah 32:17 (NIV)
17The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.
*We are promised peace and many things in the Bible, but often it is our responsibility to prepare ourselves and atmosphere for the things God has promised. For instance, peace is available to us, but it is dependent on how we conduct ourselves/who we choose to be around/ where we go/ and how we treat others. Personally speaking, God touched my heart about merry-go-rounds, and continuing to be around the same type of people,but expecting peace or different results. Sometimes you have to ask God who or what elements should be in your life to receive what you've always desired, or even how to handle things. Change can be unknowing or even uncomfortable at times, but it often works out for the better. I'm ready for some peace and something new...I'm tired of the same scenario and attitudes with different faces or in a different location....How about you?
