This morning I have been thinking about peace and harmony and how I can seem to lose those feelings when I am inconvenienced.  There are times it appears someone is late for a meeting that puts a hardship on others that are there on time.  This just happened to me last night and I entertained “irritation”.  While driving home, I did some prayer work because I noticed that it was me giving my “peace” and “harmony” away.  I then thought of how I have always “prided” myself with my punctuality and “judged” others when they were late or didn’t show up for a pre-agreed meeting.

My thought then went to knowing “pride and fear” have no place in the Kingdom of Heaven but “gratitude and humility” can always lead one there.  Jeremiah 29:11 states “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”  Later on last night, I received a telephone call for prayerful work and I thank God that by then, I had my peace and was able to assist the caller.

We may not be able to control what happens to us, but we can control how we view it.  Love and compassion are always the answer.
