The Place Within

There is a place deep inside each of us that can either be filled with problems and challenges or God, Love.  It is always our choice.  Self-absorption, which includes, self-pity, self-condemnation, self-righteousness comes up when we turn our back on God, Good.  Isaiah 41:13 reads, “For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.”  This is not only for difficult times but  for all time!

Thessalonians 5:17 states, “Pray continually.”  This does not mean long, lengthy prayers but praise and expressing gratitude for everything.  Today I choose Joy!

Peace

Peace is given to us daily and is the natural order of things, rather than the chaotic picture the world would paint.  As we learn to turn more and more to God and our inward thoughts are calmed, we can hear the small, clear voice within.

John 14:27 reads, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
