I’ve told you all this so that trusting me,
you will be unshakable and assured,
deeply at peace.
In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties.
But take heart!
I’ve conquered the world. ~John 16:33 (MSG)
daring to open doors
Shelly Miller says
I really love that photo. I can see it printed on a canvas hanging on my wall in all its simplistic beauty. And this verse reminds me of the time I walked into a room full of things that I realized I would one day have to explain later to the infant daughter I was carrying in my arms. And I was overcome with sorrow. So thankful for the One who overcame it all.
S. Etole says
Simply, exquisitely peaceful.
Oh, needed to hear this. Love it and the photography is full of gentleness.
Carol J. Garvin says
Like Shelley, I think this photo would be wonderful framed! Gorgeous shot, Sandy. And I love this translation of “unshakable and assured, deeply at peace.” Such wonderful reassurance!
Megan Willome says
I love that photo with that verse because, to me, it looks decidedly un-peaceful, like all those pods are about to blow. Which is peace, too, but in a different way.
Diane BAiley says
I love Queen Anne’s Lacy. I love that we have peace in Christ.
Jean Wise says
Uplifting photo and words. Just want I needed to read today
Oh Sandy, I really love that image. There’s something so deeply quiet and peaceful there. And coupled with that verse– just perfect. Thank you for this breath of fresh air.
Sharon O says
oh so wonderful… that we can be unshakable and assured…filled with deep peace.
Joanne Norton says
So very true. So necessary to be implanted deeply into our hearts. [I almost mis-typed “heats” instead of “hearts” and had to nod my head, b/c that is part of what we ARE facing.]
Janis@Open My Ears Lord says
Your photo is ethereal and captures that breath of peace. It seems so elusive at times in the face of our problems. The peace is fragile like your photo–it needs to be nourished by God’s word and presence.
Michelle Ortega says
Love this scripture and a hauntingly beautiful image to go with it.
Ellen Grace Olinger says
Dear Sandra, Yes, such an elegant photo and I also love these words of Jesus. Thank you, Ellen
