A brief repose

Due to life and all that it can bring at times, I will be away from my blog for a bit. Hopefully I'll post a thought here or there in the next couple of weeks , but nothing daily for a bit. I'll miss your sweet thoughts while I'm away but look forward to getting back in touch soon.

quiet time

Find time every day to be in a quiet space with God. It can be anywhere including outside. Spending even just a few minutes each day gives you enough experience with God to be able to call on his calming spirit at any time.

Choose peace

A line in A Course In Miracles states, "I can choose peace, rather than this." What a simple statement. Let this be what comes into your mind any time you are in a situation that causes unrest. It won't change what happened but it will put you in a frame of mind that will handle it in a peaceful manner.

an agent of God

Choosing peace instead of unrest allows us to become agents of God. It's a call to action instead of being a way to just wallow in self-pity as to why uncomfortable things are happening to us.
We need to remember that peace and God are one. It is only our thoughts that can give us the illusion that we are separated from God for we never really are.

button pushers

The people who push our buttons the most are the best teachers we have. They show us exactly where we need to do the most work in the arena of being instruments of peace.

who is in control?

When we are faced with a stressful situation or confrontation we need to take a breath and repeat this part of the prayer in our mind "Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace". If it is peace we desire, it is peace we must be.
