Beaver Lake, New Jersey. It doesn’t change. Year after year, the lake is the same. The kiddie beach, teenage float, wiener roast, square dance and the boat parade is the same. The Sunday Church Service on the lake (only accessible by small motor boat or kayak) is the same. The clay tennis courts are the same. The clubhouse is mostly the same. The only change is the people. The people are older, wiser and sometimes different. Owners come and go as homes pass down through the generations. A fairly timeless place. A place of peace. A place of serenity. A place of community.
Are you in the right place at this right time?

A placed deemed worthy. Worthy of you. A place to flourish. A place to excel. A place to find peace.
God wants you to feel peace. A sense of peace in the community. A peace in the world around you. A peace in fellowship with others. Do you have this peace?
God’s world is heavenly. It is a world of goodness, love, and peace. A place where there are no politics or any other volatile issues. One day, the world will change. It will become the world God planned for all along. A world that is hard for the human mind to grasp.
God is real. Sometimes too real. God is in each of us, waiting for us to hear. Just like you. It takes strong faith and a full surrender to find the peace that God wants you to have. The peace that all is well. The peace that allows God to work miracles. The peace that will enable you to enjoy your work. Passion. Calling. Peace.
God wants you to find a Beaver Lake.
Philippians 4:7 NIV
4 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.
