Peace is available in this moment…if you accept it.

(Listen to my song “Slow Me Down” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Psalm 84:3

My soul yearns and pines for the courts of the LORD. My heart and flesh cry out for the living God.


We all have an inner yearning.

It’s a deep desire for completion.

We’re missing something.

There’s a hole in our hearts that wants desperately to be filled.

But nothing of this world can satisfy that holy longing.

Many seek satisfaction through material or physical pleasures…or by gaining more power, prestige or possessions.

But it won’t work.

As St. Augustine said to God, “Our hearts are restless until they rest in You.”

God…our Loving Source…is the only One that can satisfy us.

Jesus said that we should seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness…and then all the rest (all the material things we need) will be given to us besides (Matthew 6:33).

The yearning can be filled now…and now….and now.

This is where God is always available.

So be present to the Love that sustains you…and then share it in all that you do.
