Abide Weekly Devotional: From Frustration to Peace

The Abide team does a group devotional focused on Abide's weekly theme. We read verses, listen to meditations, and reflect on how God is speaking to us. We're publishing these devotionals so you can use them as a resource for a Bible study or in your own quiet time. Enjoy!

TOPIC: From Frustration to Peace

Frustration is feeling as if you are a piece in a game of chess, when your opponent says: No, that piece cannot be moved.” - Søren Kierkegaard

Not until a person has inwardly understood himself and then sees the course he is to take does his life gain peace and meaning.” - Søren Kierkegaard

Read and listen for prepositions and transformational words. Words that describe the proximity of God who transforms you from frustration to peace...
