. . . The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! . . . Romans 8:31 (The Message)
These leather wrist bands remind us about God’s word (Jesus the word made flesh) and how much we are loved by Him. The band is packaged in a velum envelope with six cards printed on card stock with bible verse to encourage peace. We sometimes forget that our big strong men are little boys inside and need encouragement.
The biblical greek translation for peace is the absence of fear and turmoil, not the absence of trials.
When giving this wrist band, encourage them to place the bible verse cards where they can be seen throughout the day: on a dresser, counter, mirror, in the car or wallet.
The wrist band is a conversation piece when asked what it says and is a great opening to share how life is different which Jesus in your life. The ‘Be still’ means do not worry, trust God, and relax; He has your back. We do what we can do and then turn it over to Him and ‘Let God’.
Peace – Be still (don’t fear) and let God (trust God to do what you cannot, no turmoil).
Sometimes when at our lowest we cry out to God to show us a sign that He is there and cares for us. You being there to notice and pass on the wrist band with God’s words can be miraculous to them. Be His hands, give this out with words of encouragement, and a hug from God, can make all the difference in someones life.
