In the midst of all the complexities and demands of the day, God's still small voice is calling us into peace. What does peace mean to you? Is peace the absence of chaos and confusion or does peace involve knowing that all circumstances are temporary and thus transitional? For some, peace means finding contentment within ourselves and with the world around us. Peace can be found through many paths.
Regardless of the path you take toward peace the journey is worth pursuing. When we are at peace with ourselves and others we resist our inclinations to worry or feel overwhelmed by circumstances outside of our control. Peace is nurtured when we focus our energies toward life-giving activities that give us meaning and purpose. Reinhold Niebuhr’s Serenity Prayer says it this way “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.”
Connecting to our higher power helps us to live in the moment and seek peace. When we connect to forces greater than ourselves, it helps us gain perspective about what really matters. Today, get still and search for the fount of your inner peace. Attune your ear to hear God's peace in the midst of everything.
