"Peace in Spite of..." by MsHoliness A.

Updated: Feb 21, 2022

So how many of you in this season, despite anything that you may have gone through, or may be going through at present, found yourself needing peace?

If you answered, “me, I have”. Then you my friend will altogether either be able to relate to what I'm about to say, or will be inspired by it. Withal, I hope that at any avail you get what you need from this piece on today. Unlike most pieces that I write, this one is altogether hitting a lot different for me at present.

You see throughout my life, I’ve been faced with many problematic things, you know life’s storms so to speak. Whereas, whenever I‘ve experienced such storms, my peace of mind is shaken to a degree. That‘s how that typically goes, anyway. However, unbeknownst to hardly anyone, I am currently in the middle of one the most intense storms, that I have experienced in my life to date. The craziest part of it all, is that this one came to rob me of every ounce of faith in God, that I seemingly posses. Nevertheless I have contended! Which is very good news needless to say!

So, if any of you are wondering by now, why I used insisted on using the past participle of the word contend, it’s simply because I made a conscious decision to trust God, no matter what things look like, and no matter what the outcome. Therefore, I have contended, though I am not yet fully out of what I am currently in.

The reality is, though I am not fully out, that I have enough faith, trust and belief in the God of all grace, that He will bring me through and out fully at the appointed time; and I know this because I know God; and trust that this is not my first rodeo, and that I already know how this is going to end, okay. But in the meantime, because I have to endure through this until the end of a thing; God was intentional, to provide me with a measure of peace in the midst of my storm, that is unshakeable. The kind of peace that provides me with the assurance, and at points presents itself as reassurance lol, letting me know that things will all work out fine.

You see the peace of God, is why my response to my current storm has been as such, and is why I am able to weather my storm to the degree, where it doesn’t even have an effective impact on me. For I full well know that although this thing is happening to me, that in essence I am going through it for someone else out there, who currently needs, or will need the witness that, not only will God prevail amid our storms, but that He God will provide us with an unshakable peace while we are in them; and not just any kind peace, I’m talking His peace. The peace of God, a peace amid life’s storms in spite of, Amen.

In closing, I want you all to be encouraged, and be of courage knowing that according to 2 Peter 5:10, “[That] the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that [we] have suffered a while, make [us] perfect, establish [us], strengthen, settle [us]”. It is so ordered in the matchless name of our LORD Jesus, Amen. #MsHoliness™️
