In The Peace God Promises, Ann Spangler notes that to truly experience the peace of God in our lives, it’s essential to honestly examine the many stories and experiences that define who we are as well as our responses to the people and events around us. She continues by explaining why: “Because these narratives are a little like stealth aircraft. Just as jets that fly invisible under the radar, the stories we live by often develop and mature beneath our consciousness. Yet they possess tremendous power to move us either closer to peace or farther from it.” Do you find the gap between you and your Lord widening? How can you, with the Holy Spirit’s guidance, begin your journey back to Jesus?
