Cease striving. Be still.
Our Lord sees the expanse of the cosmos and finds us within it. He looks down at us and whispers into our day-to-day. Peace be with you.
God’s always got this thing called life under control. He knows everything that has happened in our lives and everything that will be. We were never made with that infinite-ness in our brains. We look up at the breadth of the sky and see the world — big, threatening — raining down upon us. But God looks down from above and, with intimate understanding, knows every single thing we need.
That’s why for 2015 I’ve chosen Peace to be my word for the year. Every year I’ve decided on one word to mull over and highlight as life unfolds throughout each day. Last year I chose Joy as my word. You can read about that here, here, here, and here on the old version of this blog.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the egocentric problems of my world that sometimes I forget that I am His daughter. He’s got this whole thing. And this year, with so many ideas, uncertainties, and concerns, I know God’s Peace is what I need to focus on more than ever.
“For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:6 ESV
