Jeff Maness- The Bible doesn’t hide the fact that storms are coming in life, in fact, Jesus even promised that this life holds “many trials and sorrows.” The great news is, even though life is full of storms, Jesus is our Hope because He’s our foundation in the storm.
Jeff Maness- Believing in Jesus won’t remove loss from our life, but it does remind us of what we have in the midst of it. Everyone goes through seasons of loss. What do we have in the midst of it?
Jeff Maness- The peace Jesus gives is not found in my circumstances, it’s found in my soul. We often look for peace on the outside, but the gift of peace that Jesus came to give is found on the inside. As Prince of Peace, Jesus came to give us peace.
