Serenity

Serenity

The other day I asked my class what they would say serenity means.  I got really good answers – “I don’t know because I have never had it” – “calm” – “peace” and “inner peace.”

For me, it is not attainable by myself.  It comes from having faith in God and knowing Him like a friend.  Through His Spirit in me, I am able to have His peace that passes all understanding.  My answer is that Serenity is inner peace in the midst of chaos.  

Do I have it all the time, no, but it is available to me when I tap into it.  For some reason we, as humans, think we can fix situations ourselves, or we are so overwhelmed when something devastating happens that we are in shock.  However, when I remember how much my Heavenly Father loves me and cares for me, as he does each one of you, it is amazingly comforting to rely on His strength and guidance and peace.

No matter what we have done or will do, His grace is sufficient for all of us.  

Let me know what you think Serenity is in your life!
