“I said, ‘Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.’” Ps 55:6 NKJV

The Psalmist wrote, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.” Have you ever felt that way? Sorry, there’s no escape! Wherever you go—there you are! Peace is “an inside job.” Oceanographers tell us that even the worst ocean storms rarely extend more than twenty-five feet below the surface. Gales can rip the ocean, causing tidal waves one hundred feet high, but just twenty-five feet below the surface the water is as calm as a pond. The point is this: The only place you’ll ever find peace in the midst of life’s storms, is through an in-depth experience with God. Korean Christians have a saying that emerged from the persecution they endured because of their faith in Christ: “We’re just like nails. The harder you hit us, the deeper you drive us; and the deeper you drive us, the more peaceful it becomes!” Part of God’s purpose in allowing the storms of life to blow, is to drive us deeper—deeper into dependence on Him, and deeper into relationship with Him. Someone said, “God takes life’s broken pieces and gives us unbroken peace.” When you focus on the God who never meets a problem He can’t solve, instead of focusing on the problem you can’t solve, you’ll experience in-depth peace. And you’ll carry that peace with you wherever you go. Others will notice it and seek your advice when they too face trouble. You see, when you know that the God within you reigns above you, you won’t succumb to what’s around you.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed ..
Any recommendations? Thank you!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy
reading your blog and I look forward to your
new updates.

Admiring the hard work you put into your site and detailed information you present.
It's nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same out of date
rehashed information. Fantastic read! I've saved your site
and I'm adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.
