Inner Peace

We are sustained by a Love that is eternal.


Listen to my song “Give Praise and Thanks” on YouTube by clicking HERE.


Psalm 46:2-3

God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress. Thus we do not fear, though earth be shaken and mountains quake to the depths of the sea.


What strikes me about today’s scripture verses is in the first sentence:


Is God ever-present to you?

For the psalmist, God was refuge and strength in times of distress.

This is the difference between believing God is somewhere out there instead of being right here.

God is as close to you as your very breath.

The name “Yahweh” is breath itself.

Try breathing in while saying “Yah” – then breathe out saying “weh”.

Yahhhhhhhhhh, wehhhhhhhhhh.

Yahhhhhhhhhh, wehhhhhhhhhh.

Yahhhhhhhhhh, wehhhhhhhhhh.

Feel the calming begin.

Your soul is safe and sound in the arms of your loving Creator.

There is nothing to fear.

Give praise and thanks!
