“I shouldn’t be OK, but I’m OK.”

Have you ever heard someone who is going through a trial say this? Maybe they’re facing a scary health issue, a job loss, financial crisis, or family troubles. The circumstances aren’t good, yet the person isn’t totally dejected and downtrodden. 

The person is probably experiencing the peace of God that passes understanding. 

It’s when you have an extraordinary sense of calm come over your mind and heart even though a storm is raging. 

This peace is rooted in eternity rather than the present. When today brings everything evil under the sun, God’s peace reminds us of tomorrow, and the next day, and even the day after our last day on earth when we experience the next life — made possible by Jesus Christ.

If you are in need of some supernatural peace today, we hope that today’s Good Word comforts you.
