Peace that surpasses all understanding! Philippians 4:7; Isaiah 26:3

Good morning everyone,
Philippians 4:7 says, 'And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your minds in Christ Jesus.'  Isaiah 26:3 says, 'You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind (both its inclination and its character) is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.'   Peace seems to avoid many of us because we fail to be able to cut out the distractions of life.  Have you ever ask God to stop the spin cycle so you can hop out of the machine to regain your bearings?
Much of the time, we try and juggle too many activities and thus we can't focus on one particular area where we need to serve Him!  Peace comes to those who trust in His guidance and direction.  If the Father doesn't think it is important, why should we feel as though it is super important to get all 53 projects done before we can spend time with Him.  It is funny how we justify that work requires us to do such and such in order to be considered a success!  The people that I admire are the ones that use their profession as a platform to shine a light on Jesus.  True peace comes to those that prioritize the things that are important and they don't let work become their God.  Even if you are successful at getting all 53 projects done, do you think your work will require anything less in the weeks to follow?  If you are so tired and out of gas on the weekends that you go into your closet instead of spending time in church and taking time to fellowship with other believers, you are confusing what God deems to be important.  Please consider consulting with the Coach so you will know what game plan He has for you to carry out!  Then peace will surpass anything that can you can understand!  
Your brother in Christ,
