Rain trickles and patters gently outside the window. It’s quiet and peaceful. Lilting melody of River Flows In You… and my already heavy eyes grow heavier.
Savor the quietness.
I wish it could always be quiet and peaceful. No trouble – no worries – no stress – no trials.
Be still and know that I am God.
And then I remember that there is rest. True rest and peace.
Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. (Unknown)
It’s given freely to us by the very One who created the universe.
He gently asks us for our surrender and complete trust. In return, He gives us sweet peace and rest.
Surrender is giving up our will a thousand times a day and by doing so, agreeing deep within that God is ultimately in control of our lives.
Hang onto your hat – it might be a wild ride! 😉
