Over the last week especially, I have felt God giving me a heart of peace. The unknown of Grace's life is one of the hardest things, and up until recently I have really been afraid of what her life means and what her life will be like. It all seems like chaos to me, to know that what I thought my life was going to be like has been turned upside down. I guess I've never really had much chaos in my life, thankfully.
God is giving me such peace in the unknown road we are going down. Somehow - I know with a lot of prayer by so many interceding on our family's behalf - I feel peace in my heart.
I choose daily (sometimes hour-ly, minute-ly, second-ly) to trust in the peace that God is giving me, instead of the chaos of the unknown in my mind. This is certainly not always an easy choice. But He is peace when my fear is crippling.
Isaiah 26:3 - You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
Philippians 4:7 - The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
