The Peace God Promises: Closing the Gap Between What You Experience and What You Long For by Ann Spangler and published by Zondervan.
Untie your peace from your circumstances; be free from fear and anxiety; find joy and comfort regardless of what is happening or not happening in your life. How many times have you thought, "If I could only get away for a few days," "If I didn't have to deal with this person, I wouldn't be so stressed," or "If my bills were taken care, of I could relax"? Circumstances can only carry us as far as a passing sense of happiness; God promises more. Wouldn't we all like to stop making excuses for why we can't have peace here and now?
Ann Spangler's The Peace God Promises was born out of a desire that so many of us share: lasting, immovable, unshakeable peace. By exploring the meaning of 'shalom' from Jewish tradition, and adopting Amish perspectives on simplicity and rest, Spangler presents an attainable, accessible and sustainable method for experiencing God's peace regardless of our circumstances. There is nothing on this earth quite like the peace of Christ. The Peace God Promises will encourage you, help you find rest, and calm your spirit through experiencing His presence and adding shalom to your life. Are there any among us who don't long for this?
