Peace Like A River

In this hectic world, it’s hard to find peace. When I look at most people’s faces, I see a lot of stress. So much to do and not enough time to do it. How does one find peace in our generation? Everywhere we look, there is calamity, noise, and seemingly so many things that need to be done. PEACE LIKE A RIVER!

The truth is that peace can be found and it’s not very far away, but you won’t find it by listening to the world’s ways and demands. There is only one way it comes, from the Lord. And His peace goes beyond our understanding.

Philippians 4:4-74 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Isaiah 48:17,18 “This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. 18 If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your well-being like the waves of the sea.

Before I knew the Lord and started walking with Him, I had no peace. I would worry about everything. It’s how I grew up. Now, I take everything to Him trusting that He is going to help me through whatever it is that I am facing. Once I give it over to Him, this incredible peace just emanates all around me into my very being. There’s nothing like it and it is available to all who want it. Please read my other posts on how to find Him and walk with Him. It is a journey like no other and He has a destiny and purpose for your life. It is good. PEACE LIKE A RIVER!

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…

SDDL Website

I am presently converting “Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life” into a movie and have just finished publishing the 3rd book in the sequel to “Islands In The Sea”, titled “Illegitimate?” It is now available in the trilogy on this site through Amazon. We finished filming and producing the JOURNEY TO HOPE! 7 DVD Series with Janiece Turner-Hartmann and they are on YouTube for those who need help and encouragement. We are planning to take some time out to record some more music and then start touring early this year, 2017. Hope to see you on the road.
