I've noticed many people writing that they are focusing on a word or idea for the year. I hadn't really planned to do that, but as I was sitting in church a couple of times in the last few weeks, God kept pointing me to several words – and they all were part of the Fruit of the Spirit. What a fun way of teaching our grandkids and encouraging our parents with the Fruit of the Spirit, do you think? I am going slightly out of order. I wanted to save LOVE for February. 🙂 And peace truly spoke to my heart this month, so that's where we'll start.

The word PEACE really spoke to me for the first of the year – a time to reflect on the past year and make positive plans for the coming year. And what better place to start than with growing our knowledge of God. Last year, I wrote about working through the Bible using the verse by verse Bible studies of Pastor Joe Focht and his audio sermons at Calvary Chapel Philadelphia. Sometimes I did sit-down Bible studies and loved those immensely, but overall the bustling Sandwich Generation issues I dealt with over the year kept me firmly planted in my car, listening to those verse by verse Bible studies, and being very very blessed by them. I'm in 2 Chronicles and looking forward to continuing throughout this year. They're so interesting, I really enjoy them and I love learning so many interesting new facts and concepts. They're also great to share with our senior relatives – especially those who aren't able to get out to church.

And how about you? Have you made plans to spend time daily in the Word of God. It's such a joy and truly, even in the midst of trials and storms, I am sure you will find that:

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Peter 1:2

Definitely sweet words of encouragement for our Sandwich Generation families – from our aging senior parents on down to our young grandkids.

Have a blessed and beautiful week in His Word and in His peace. And if you have a favorite Scripture about peace, I'd love for you to share it in the comments. 🙂

  1. God’s peace is a great area to focus on! Spending time in God’s word is my priority this year. Thanks for sharing.

    Peace – I prize it above all. I cannot attain it without quiet time alone with Him. Like you, I deal with “sandwich” issues. Bless you and your encouragement to us “fillings”.
    Shalom (and thanks for stopping by Gail-Friends this week.

  2. I love that beautiful verse, Kaye. 🙂 Here are some verses on Peace that I put to music.

  3. My favorite peace verse is, “You will keep them in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You.” I’ve proven it to be true!

  4. Thank you for these sweet words of encouragement. I love the thought that God’s grace and peace is multiplied (not simply added) to us through the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord! 🙂
