Peace, Be Still

This season has been a season of intense questions.

"What am I going to do after High School?"
"Should I tolerate war?"
"Is God a bully?"

(To name a few)

In the midst of this, I've learned that the "peace of God that transcends all understanding" that Philippians references is not just a peace that we have access to when we find ourselves in perilous situations. It actually means peace that is better than the satisfaction of having the answers. This is the hardest thing for me to grasp.

"I think the fear of God failing us leads us to 'cover for God.'

This means we ask for less, expect less, and are satisfied

with less because we are afraid to expect more."

-Francis Chan
