Peace…

Standard

I have not had very much peace in my heart lately, for various reasons, so why yesterday?!?!

Maybe it is the whole thought of a new beginning…not one I would have put in place, but I am not The One in charge and I don’t know what the future holds.

You know, reading and listening to everything that happened yesterday, I had such a peace….I know that may sound korney, but that is the only way I know how to describe it.  I was at work yesterday, so all I heard, till I got home, was bits and pieces of what other people had heard and seen, or what people had told them that they had heard and seen (double hear say ***not a good thing (thanks My Love)).  I won’t even go into some the the stuff I heard, because it was so not true!!!!  So what if Obama messed up on the words of the ‘swearing in’, he said what the guy that was in charge of ‘leading ‘ him through it said….he followed his leading and they both messed up.  Did Obama stand  in front of American and the World and put the poor guy down for messing up?  No! ( I am thinking he probably could have, cuz he probably knew exactly what he was suppose to say!) And it was not the end of the world!  Will Obama screw up in front of American and the World again..yes.   Will I be the one to judge him or say what an idiot he is…I hope not, because I will screw up too (maybe not in front of all of American and the World, but for sure in front of my randomly crazie little world), and I don’t want someone bashin on me because I am human.

Who knows if that all made much sense.  But I have peace, and in my little randomly crazie world, that is all that matters.

  1. Wowie!! Go Amy, go Amy, go!!! Now that was a stand. It can also be said for the people who are bashing the president that just left office. The president does deserve respect, his job is much harder and more complicated than mine. Well, depends how you look at it. 🙂 Why can’t we all just get along?

  2. Very well said, Amy. I’m not at the point where I’d say I have “peace”. But I’m working on a positive attitude and letting God work on his heart. I agree that it’s hard not being the one in charge or in control. Not that I’ll ever be President, but I’d feel more at ease if the President was on my side. I’m working on it, really I am. 🙂

    Miss seeing you around,BTW

  3. Oh, I so love this scripture that was given by Beth Moore this past week in the Esther study and it allows us to have peace over our leaders. Proverbs 21: 1
    “The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it whereever he will.”
    ESV
    Referring to human kings and leaders.
    That gives me so much peace.

  4. I agree with you Amy. We are called to love the unlovable not just the easy to love. While I do not agree with much if anything Obama has to say or do, I do seek with my whole heart to allow Christ to love him through me. We are all just works in progress so hats off to you girl well said. May we all be more like Christ in our responses.
