Vital signs

Life with God is not immunity from difficulties, but peace in difficulties. — C.S. Lewis

Love is the selfless, giving, devoted love of God that compels us to put others' needs above our own. Love honors others and celebrates truth. Gives of self even when it doesn’t feel like it.

Joy is a deep and enduring state of our soul that no circumstance, event, or human can steal away from us. It’s delighting in God and choosing to rejoice in all things. Because our circumstances and mood swings don’t rule us. Joyful people don’t allow misery, sorrow, sadness, or despair to rule their thoughts or guide their actions.

Peace is a deep well of confidence that God is who He is and that He will do what He says He will do. Peace comes from resting in the promises of God. Peace is often unexplainable.

“So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬
