    Way of life Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭1-2‬ MSG

    He is your life- So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides.

See things from his perspective. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭1-2‬ MSG)

Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal’ (26:3–4). This is the secret of perfect peace. It comes from trust in the Lord, in spite of the trials and temptations. There is so much that I could worry about. I am going to make a list of the things that first come to mind, and then give them over to God and try to bask in that ‘perfect peace’.
