Exceeding Understanding

I have decided to approach this week with a grateful heart and keep my "eyes on the prize," so to speak (namely, Jesus). There is much going on right now at work that could be scary if I allow it to be (and I have done enough of that). it is most certainly sad, in any case. My boss of the past 12+ years is very, very sick and may not be here much longer. (I think that what happens to him now is out of doctor's hands and resides solely in those of God). Focusing on my job [the added pressures] and all the issues surrounding it at present brings a real measure of anxiety that can only be abated by the peace that surpasses all understanding-- that peace is found in Jesus Christ. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:7 (NLT)

Tonight is my first night with a small group I am joining at a church I recently started attending. I am looking forward to delving into the book of Daniel in more detail over the next couple of months and making some new friends along the way. So far, I have enjoyed the book we are using (although I have only read one chapter). It is called The Book of Daniel (The Smart Guide to the Bible Series) by Daymond R. Duck and Larry Richards. It is available from Amazon, Christianbook.com and your local Christian bookseller. The link attached to the book's name will take you to Amazon for more details. I have taken a fairly recent interest in prophecy, which I must admit I tended to shy away from previously. I am glad I have come to terms with that and am taking a closer look. After all, if it is in God's Word, it is there are a reason: to be read, understood and applied.
