Study Excerpts:

The presence of God’s peace in my life is the opposite of anxiety. As long as I live on this sin-scorched earth, I will encounter continual and legitimate causes for moments, even seasons of stress. The fight for peace is won as I remember—regardless of what I feel and what I can or cannot see—the victory is already won and my Commander is powerful, mighty to save. — Everyday Peace excerpt


One day, when we meet Jesus face-to-face in heaven, our daily fears, woes, and worries will be obliterated. Until then, we must learn how to experience the promised peace of God through enjoying the presence of the God who calms every fear, banishes every doubt, and soothes every heartbreak. — Everyday Peace excerpt


God keeps my tears in a bottle. He counts my every tossing. He also knows every hair on my head (Matthew 10:30) and every move I make (Psalm 139:2).

He is lovingly near, not apathetically distant.

He is intimately acquainted, not carelessly detached.

He is powerfully proficient, not totally incapable.

I must fight for this view of God. Because, though it is who the God of the Bible is, it is not always the God I depict in my mind’s eye. — Everyday Peace excerpt


A quick glance at today’s news, my schedule, maybe even my bank account, causes me to begin experiencing distress. I cannot escape the weights of this world, but I do have a choice in how I respond.

Regardless of its source, I experience anxiety when I ignore who God is. When I forget the power, grace, perspective, and love He freely gives, I have no choice but to take the stressors upon myself.

This self-dependence leads to anxiety—the negative cycle of overwhelming pressure and utter hopelessness—which proceed to drive and dictate my heart and mind.

This anxiety feedback loop is a result of leaving God out of the stress equation. — Everyday Peace excerpt
