Ever misplace something, like your keys? We all have. Sometimes we are late for an appointment and we have misplaced our keys, our purse or wallet. Sometimes we even exclaim, “I think I am losing my mind!” Ever been there?
What about misplaced peace? Sometimes we get so caught up in the stress of life that we leave our peace behind. Peace is more than the absence of something like war or conflict. Peace for the believer is the presence of Someone. It is living conscious of God’s heart for us that keeps us in a place of peace.
When we begin to live out of fear or worry it is a sign that we have left our peace behind. Losing our peace usually involves making an agreement which is not true. Such as, “I have so much to do I’ll never get done!” Loss of peace for me comes when I get my eyes on my circumstances and off of the Prince of Peace.
So how do you go back and pick the peace back up? You repent for allowing your emotions to become captive to a lie or a form of thinking that leaves God out of the equation. Without repentance, you can’t change your mind and without changing your mind you can’t pick your peace back up.
A great prayer to pray over this Christmas season is, Father please give me some kind of warning when I am about to leave the place of peace you have created for me.

Grace Fellowship Property Relocation-
Grace Fellowship is under contract for 5.5 acres on the corner of Main Street and Cemetery Road (diagonal from the High School).
The Building Fund balance is $324,911. We will be able to pay cash for the property when the sale is expected to finalize later this year. Paying cash will deplete our Building Fund, so we have a weekend where everyone of us is encouraged to plant some financial seed, (no matter how small) into the Building Fund-December 11-12.
Newer at GF-
If you are newer at Grace Fellowship we will be offering a Grow With Grace class! Grow With Grace is a next step class of learning what we believe, our history, and how you can better be a functioning part of the Body of Christ here. Grow With Grace will be a 90-minute class Saturday, December 4 at 9:30 am. This class is by reservation and it’s not too late to sign up. Just call the church office at 307-684-7511.
