“Peace does not dwell in outward things, but within the soul; we may preserve it in the midst of bitterest pain, if our will remains firm and submissive. Peace in this life springs from acquiescence to, not in exemption from, suffering.”

I woke up this morning in pain, but I felt the joy of the Lord residing in me! Yesterday, my mom told me that I needed to “change the channel.” In other words, focus on something better. This morning, she could her the joy in my voice and told me, “Wow! You didn’t just change the channel… you bought a new TV!” I realized that this pain may not go away for a while. Medicine is a temporary fix. Prayer is a permanent fix. Thank You God for listening to me this morning! I came across this verse, 1 John 5:14 “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”
