I'm thankful for God's peace that passeth all understanding. In times of death and loss of family and friends, it is difficult to understand "why". However, God doesn't ask us to understand but to trust Him to know what is best...His Will, not ours. He sees the big picture, where we just see the here and now.
His peace is perfect peace, real peace. In the most difficult times of our lives, we can still have peace that passeth understanding. Why? Because God's Word says so.
May the peace that transcends all understanding be with you today. Have a blessed and thankful Thursday.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (NIV)
