Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. John 14:27

Wig’s Word of God Today 5-8-2012

 

With prayer and fasting they commended them to the LORD in whom they had come to believe. Acts 14:23b

 

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. John 14:27

 

Acts 14:19-28, Psalm 145 & John 14:27-31

 

Our passage in Acts today describes Paul being stoned and dragged out of the city where the Disciples think he is dead but he gets up and goes with them back into the city. In the Free Will of God’s Divine Plan for Paul, he learns to offer up prayer and fasting to not only teach the Good News but to overcome mistake, hardships and confusion. Paul realized that “it is necessary for us to undergo many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.”

 

We all make mistakes we are trying to overcome as we grow in age and wisdom where we experience things that we ultimately regret. These can range from the smallest of mistakes to the largest of sins where we let on ego get in the way and forget to put God first. By trusting in Christ’s own words of peace, we can learn to overcome even the least bit of fright or troubles learning as we grow to replace anger with reconciliation.

 

Take my mistake last week of being frustrated with a piece of lawn equipment. As I finished some lawn work, I pulled out my leaf blower and tried to crank it up. It wouldn’t start for nothing. Instead of just putting it down, I let anger get in my way and pulled it countless times in about a five-minute span. My anger caused me to tear a muscle in my right forearm causing seven days later a trip to the Emergency Room after two sleepless nights of sever aching pain to be relieved. As my arm continues to throb today and pain meds made me sleep in a state of recovery past my normal writing times, I encourage you all to learn from the mistake of anger and let Christ’s Peace control your world. Amen.

 

Dear LORD, we pray to replace our anger with Your Son’s Peace and healing. We pray for my children. I pray a prayer of thanksgiving for Father Paul’s genuine concern and friendship. I pray a prayer of help LORD to allow me fast healing in my arm. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

The Command of Peace I follow as the Father’s Sapling- John 14:27-31

 

He spoke often to His courageous men

Disciples of love who can’t pretend

Leaving His Peace from anger to always defend

Hearts plagued and troubled minds that offend

 

Rejoice in your love for Me

For I’m going to Father to see

The Advocate of Truth to Eternally Be

Humanity’s Redemption of sin to be free

 

Now you know ahead of time what will happen

When it sows you’ll remember the slapping

Of my Truth against your soul eternally mapping

The Command of Peace I follow as the Father’s Sapling

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
