February Already!

The above picture, taken randomly of waves on the beach in Skegness last February, clearly spells out to Jean and I the name JO, the waves are moving and the sunlight changing, you could not see this and decide to take a photograph of it, it was there in an instant and then gone, it was only when I was looking at the pictures I had taken did I notice it.

JO is a name Jean sometimes uses to refer to me, it stands for JESUS ONLY, it was a sign to us that we were in the right place, we were not looking for a sign but it was there.

This February we are in a completely different place, we are still by the seaside, the Northern Coast of Wales instead of the Eastern Coast of England. Our situation is as different as the coastlines, from sandy beaches to rugged coastline, from unemployed to gainfully employed, the one thing that hasn't changed is we still trust and rely on God to guide us and be with us, given us peace in all circumstances, not the peace of employment and a steady income, no that can change in an instant, we had great peace last year while unemployed and travelling, we are talking about the peace that knowing Jesus brings, the peace He promised us, the peace that He is with us, the peace that passes all understanding.

John 14:27 New International Version

27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Philippians 4:7 New King James Version

7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Matthew 28:20 New King James Version

20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
