Be Still


There is a profound calm available now in the silence.

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”


Jesus’ words are much needed for us now.

They are very comforting.

Let them soak into your heart and calm your soul.

Take a deep breath.

Breathe out slowly.

Breathe in deeply again…and slowly release your breath.

Really…take a moment and do that.

As you did it, what did you experience?

In those moments…there were no problems.

Feel the peace that the world cannot give.

As you abide here in this present moment…what is there to fear?


Each of us is created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27).

Since God is love (1 John 4:8), we have been loved into existence by Love itself.

Each of us is part of God’s creative masterpiece in progress.

By our mere presence we are more than enough.

You don’t have to do anything to earn or merit the love that has been poured out upon you.

So…no matter what you are going through now, nothing can harm you.

You are safe in a peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7).

Close your eyes and breathe slowly.

Spend some quiet time in the Divine Presence.
