Presence and Peace
Thursday, February 06, 2020
I felt compelled to share part of one of my devotionals this morning. It certainly can be applied to our new lifestyles of making good choices in every aspect of our daily lives.
.......To receive My Peace, you must change your grasping, controlling stance to one of openness and trust. The only thing you can grasp without damaging your soul is My hand. Ask My Spirit within you to order your day and control your thoughts, for the mind controlled by the Spirit is Life and Peace.
You can have as much of Me and My Peace as you want, through thousands of correct choices each day. The most persistent choice you face is whether to "trust Me" or to worry.....
Several months ago when I was having so much trouble with my boss, I started praying for her and her relationship with her husband...and how it affects me.
I was seriously considering leaving my job whether I had another to go to or not. Which meant I could lose my new home if I couldn't make my house payment. I felt it was a matter of self preservation because of the abusive behaviors towards each other and towards me.
Due to all the misunderstandings at the time, I also started praying "help me to speak and think with clarity and discernment".
I have been doing this now for just over 3 months. It has made a WORLD of difference.
I feel happy and at ease again in my job. But I do not take that feeling for granted. I am thankful everyday and continue to pray for them. I have no other reason to believe that this situation has turned around than because of my prayers and God.
Presence begets Trust which begets Peace.
