A Time of Upheaval and Conflict

Today I am feeling the effects of my life being in upheaval and a small
(I hope it's small) conflict.

I looked for verses to help me with these feelings and I'm going to share them tonight.

I know I keep going on about my life being in a bit of turmoil and you have all been so kind to listen, encourage and pray.

Since I'm still trying to get through this I'm stressed out and am taking a break tonight. Here are the verses I read tonight to help me.

"You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am. You both precede and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. I can never escape from your spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me."
Psalm 139: 3, 5, 7, 9-10 NLT


" in peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you."
2 Corinthians 13:11 NCV


"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."
Matthew 5:9 NRSV


  1. I will be praying for you. Please call me if you need anything or just feel like talking. I know you've got a lot going on right now with your mom and your job coming up and getting the kids ready for school. That alone is enough stress! Love you!

  2. Wonderful verses Nannette. I pray you'll feel His peace.

  3. Oh what great verses! Never apologize for sharing your heart. I pray God will grant you the peace you are looking for.

    Take care my sweet friend!

  4. I needed this today.
    Blessings, andrea

  5. Hang in there friend. I know our God is loving you through this time.


  6. Nannette,

    I am sorry you are hurting. I don't know what the cause is, but my prayers are with you.

    Love to you,
