How to find peace; three easy steps… | Janet Perez Eckles

19 Sep I was 29 years old and while my three small sons played in the basement, I sat on the bed, folding laundry. I had a box of tissues beside me as tears flowed. I had just heard news from the ophthalmologist that there was no cure for the retinal disease that was robbing my sight way too fast. I could still see bits and pieces, but blindness was inevitable. Fighting the gloomy thoughts, the 700 Club played on the TV. The host offered prayers if we dialed an 800 number. I called. And as my voice choked, I spoke to a kind lady who prayed for me. Back then when I made that phone call, I didn’t know that God’s plans were in the making. He healed my attitude, gave me 20/20 spiritual sight, handed me a ministry, and gave me opportunities to write books and so much more. And the other day, gratitude overflowed in me as I realized that my guest appearance in the 700 Club had gone full circle. I reached out to them for prayer back then. And nearly 30 years later, God has me featured on that show for my story to inspire others. God has the very same for you, too. You might have a tissue box beside you. Maybe life is turning dark and hope seems to be at the bottom of the laundry basket of life—hard to see. Here are three simple steps found In Jeremiah 29:11 to bring back peace:
