God has blessed my life since Jan 1 with peace. My Logos365 has so many components and applications.
- Peace is a gift from God (John 14:27)
- Peace with others is so important (Romans 12:18)
- Experiencing peace exceeds all I can understand and guards my heart and mind! ( Phil 4:7)
- I choose peace- in all situations (driving, talking, shopping, eating, sleeping. (2 Tim 2:22)
- I choose to be a peacemaker! (James 3:18)
- Greek word for peace is eireneuo (have peace, live peaceably, be at peace)
- Hebrew word for peace is shalom ( well, welfare, salute, prosperity, save, health)
I am experiencing "peace" in many areas in my life.
Spiritual: spending so much time with God in writing scripture, leading Bible study, creating faithart and in prayer.
Physical: I began a new lifestyle December 28th. I had been feeling down, low, and had lots of aches and pains. I began to exercise again ( walking 1.5 miles each day in 16 min) biking with my dog daily, and eating healthy. I have lost 14 lbs so far, and feeling the "high" of endorphins from exercising, and eating less and healthy. All of that brings me physical peace!
Emotional: The spiritual peace has affected my emotional health also! I haven't experienced the lows of my lifelong depression, my anxiety is much less, and I am giving myself more grace which results in a even rhytham in my days and nights!
Financially: I received my annual bonus and have been able to pay off my CC and a few small debts I had with others. I was able to pay cash for my new smartphone, my new computer, my new glasses( 3 new pairs- everyday, sunglasses and computer glasses). I am planning on retiring from my full time job Sept 2017 when I turn 66, so have created a financial plan for the next 18 months, so that I can live on my savings and SS and live in my wonderful home here in FL. That all amounts to such a relief and a peace, that he has provided for me and continues to provide.
Intellectually: I am going deeper in my knowledge of the Bible- in bible history, Greek and Hebrew words and meanings.
Creatively: Teaching myself Adobe Illustrator, learning and practicing new spiritual disciplines ( scripture writing), hand lettering and exploring new art techniques. Loving my planner/journal for 2016- giving me so much freedom to create and include in my planner! It is so peaceful to allow myself to be creative and allow His creativity to flow through my heart and hands!
