Where Peace Resides...

Sometimes finding peace in life means looking deep past the chaos. Training the mind to recognize even the smallest glimpses of light in the dark. To recognize them as a hope gift from above.

Peace is not just possible when the path is fully lit. Rarely is the path fully lit. Peace only flows through Trust. Oh, to have the full portion of it! Trust, that is.

The rugged roads of life are what draws us near to Grace. The heart willing to learn, the mind willing to train. The willing, focused mind, focused only on the Truth, is fully open to the gift of peace.

How easy the mind is distracted. The mind imagines the looming mountain; fatigues itself in its vain imaginations.

Come to me, you who are heavy-burdened. You will find peace and rest in Me. You must only be willing to fall in My loving arms and trust Me.

Earnest prayers flow through the Spirit to the Father. Prayers for the power to believe fully. Prayers for the power to trust fully.
