Good morning, DearHeart.
What have you lost your peace over these past days? Corona? Grocery cost? Political wars? Division? Illness?
“Sovereign LORD, You made the earth and the sky by Your great power and might; nothing is too difficult for You.”
“You make wise plans and do mighty things; You see everything that people do, and You reward them according to their actions.”
In our racing minds, if not in the practice of getting still for a moment, we carry the whole burden. Our minds speed up and collect more and more burdens. Heavier, and heavier.
The peace part loses its power simply because we fail to acknowledge it.
There’s not a lot of in between. “Peaceful” doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve gotten to a state of excitement or delight about a situation. Peace is the clarity that brings calm — no matter what’s going on. So… you can be at peace
with the hard work that needs to be done.
Peace doesn’t always dissolve the weightiness of things, but it gives you the resolve to carry what you must and put down the rest. Give your Maker some credit – He is strong enough to carry His part.
You may move in and out of states of peace. On Monday you might feel all cool and at ease with a situation, and that’s real. And then on Tuesday, feelings might arise that disturb your peace. That’s okay. We are all a little shaky these days. Choose the thinking that will get you back to inner peace. If you keep doing that, the peace gets deeper and less shakeable.
Even if it’s just one day at a time, when it comes to being at peace, you’re either in or you’re out.
You’ll know it when you get there.
May we all get there
“I am the LORD, the God of the whole human race. Nothing is too difficult for me.”
Jeremiah 32:17, 19, 27 GNB
When you let the push, push, push, of keeping up unwind from your spine and meander. Peace in. Peace out.
Hand over the weight.
