Peace Challenge Outcome and April's Challenge

Jenna, from Feminine Farmgirl, challenged everyone, in March, to have Peace. Something funny that happens to me every time I comment on her blog, to tell her that I am going to join the challenge, is that I get challenged! What I mean is that when the challenge was to be joyful I found it hard to be joyful! I found it hard last month to be have peace but with God all things are possible (Philippians 4:13) and here I am in April! My allergies have been acting up all year and it has affected my stomach! Sometimes my stomach feels like it wants to be sick but I haven't been yet (Praise the Lord). It was hard to feel peaceful when my stomach was acting up!
Here are some verses that I read at the beginning of the month about peace:

Romans 5:1-2
1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,2through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.

Romans 15:13
13May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Galatians 5:22-23

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

I hope everyone had a wonderful and peaceful month! April's Challenge is on self-control! If you want to join just visit Jenna's blog and leave her a comment that you want to join the challenge.
In Christ,
