Of The Laurel Leaves

Getting to know who Jesus is and what His relationship with us is, not the one the media portrays, but the real Jesus and what He wants from us can be hard. I hope this blog will inspire others (and myself) to continue fighting the good fight when things get tough. Because in the end, the reward will be so much better than any of us could have hoped for.

You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He may give it to you.

James 1:5 ~ “Refuse to accept any standard that permits lack. I am not a God of lack, but of abundance.”

Mike Bickle says it best. He says, “There’s two kinds of people in the the world—in the body of Christ; there’s lovers and there’s workers, and lovers will always get more work done than will workers.” Lovers will actually have more done in the realm of obedience than a slave will, but it’s because they’ve tapped into another resource in their heart and that is what’s available in the realms of passion and intimacy—friendship.

Perfect peace. Photo Credit

All the worries of this world
I will lay them at Your feet
Surrender every anxious thought
For perfect peace
Your perfect peace 

One of my favourite songs by Elevation Worship. I love how the song opens. How nice it would be to possess - not just regular peace - but perfect peace! Whose peace is perfect? Where can we find it? In Jesus! Jesus is the only source of perfect peace. When we feel anxious and when the storms roll around, look to Jesus and draw from His abundant, overflowing pool of peace. Surrender all your anxiety, fears, and cares and trade it in for Jesus’s perfect peace. What a wonderful exchange!
