Peace That Passes Understanding


At one of my bible studies this week we were discussing and talking about "dwelling on His truth" as a way to find peace...

One of the questions asked of the group was whether we knew anybody who just really embodied a Godly peacefulness.

There were a couple shared stories of people facing monumental giants in life - be it sickness or some other challenge - who had found an amazing and impressive peacefulness in Him.

I am always inspired by those and know a few myself.

But as I was wracking my brain to think of a good solid example in my life... I kept coming back to this same person...

MEBBIE!


This girl has an amazing peace about her... ALL THE TIME!

She remains calm in the face of stress...

She chooses positive words...

She is always trying to lift others up...

She has displayed empathy and compassion like nothing I've ever seen...

And she almost always ends up back at Jesus with everything she does...

And please hear me... I'm not saying Mebrate is perfect or doesn't have challenges... come on! She's human, right?

But she faces her challenges and confronts her imperfections with an unearthly peace that passes understanding that can only come from one place...

Her heavenly Father!!


And her outlook, her presence, her empathy, her approach to God, her sense of joy in almost everything... ALL OF IT... has impacted her earthly daddy more than she'll ever know!

The world has certainly been blessed by this girl and I am absolutely blessed and privileged to be in the role of "daddy" to her.

I see you, Mebbie! And daddy is in awe of who He made you to be!
