Monday Musings

Once again I was privileged to attend this evening's prayers meeting.  The following is a meditation from  UCB radio and led by my dear friend Bea:

" Peace is your inheritance, your birthright.  When you have lost your peace it is harder to hear from God.  Your best problem solving resource is peace; anxiety blocks any solution.  God's peace is available to you if you choose it"

How ironic that I should encounter these words after the fact!  Last week was particularly challenging both physically and mentally; I reached a point where I could not truly pray nor find comfort in the Bible.  During times of great anxiety the only word I could breathe was the holy name of Jesus and little by little the tempest was calmed and peace ensued.  His loving and gentle words to us says it all:

" Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you: not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

John 14 v 27

May the peace of God be your anchor in the storms of life.
