~Peace beyond my understanding~

We live in a hectic and sometimes crazy world these days! And I don't know about you but I find myself searching to find some Peace from the Chaos at times, Which is often hard to do, especially if you have a career outside of church. It's sometimes hard for those of you who are around co-workers who speak with a dirty language or tell dirty jokes around you, It's hard to know what to say when they speak those kind of things around you that you do not agree with and aren't comfortable hearing.
One might even ponder the thought of "How could I witness to that guy..he curses like a sailor!"
The answer to that question would be for you to change the subject..Talk about how beautiful the weather is that God made, Or tell them more about yourself! if you show yourself friendly eventually the opportunity of you talking about Jesus or inviting them to church will present itself!
If you pay close attention when you're out there in the world, we are given many opportunities to bring our Faith out to people, One of the most simple ways that I often use as a witnessing tool is I'll say "God bless you!" It's easy to remember and easy to say to a stranger! I would encourage you to try this if you're a Shy person or unsure of what to say, this is an easy way to start!
I love to read verse in the Bible about Peace when there is too much of the crazy out there in the world, It helps me to regain my focus on the positive things and it gets my mind back on the things of the Lord!
Here is a good go to verse for you to study (philippians 4:7) "And the Peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
As long as we seek the Lord and pray for him to give us understanding of how to reach those in the world, God will give us the Peace in knowing that somehow he will give us the right words to witness to people out there. Don't worry or become distracted by what they are speaking at work, Instead pray about it and ask God to give you the right words and an understanding.
People that have never been in church or heard the name Jesus cannot understand the kingdom because they have no knowledge whatsoever of it and we as Christians must try our best to have the Patience and understanding of that. We can reach them and We will reach them if we ask God to guide us along the way!
