As I begin my day this morning, I was pondering just how close God is; certainly not a far-off God! Feeling He is as close as my next heartbeat, prayer or thought and relishing that thought I am reminded of Romans 8:38-39 which states “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
When I keep this foremost in my mind, I can be alert to any irritation, fear or worry that attempts to sneak in and cast it out immediately. Either my thoughts are harmonious or not for they certainly cannot hold Love and hatred at the same time. It is my choice what to nurture and I choose peace.
