Be Still


Amidst every struggle may you awaken to a peace beyond understanding.

Psalm 3:6-7

Whenever I lay down and slept, the Lord preserved me to rise again. I do not fear, then, thousands of people arrayed against me on every side.


Sometimes life is tough and it can feel like there are so many people against us.

It can feel like life is against us.

Jesus experienced this in the worst possible way and continued to respond in love.

The truth is, life will deliver difficulties.

It is not to make you miserable but to wake you up.

The difficulties may be obstacles to deal with, but they only cause suffering when your mind starts telling you unpleasant stories about them.

The truth is…your truest self at your deepest core…is always safe and secure in the Love of God.

When you rest in the moment…even though life is handing you struggles…all is well.

God is with you and cannot let you go.

When you let go…turning over your need to control the situation…and allow God to lead you…you will experience peace amidst the storms.

If you are going through something difficult this day…invite God to help. 

Wake up and rise again.

Do not fear.

Trust that you are being led by Love to New Life!
