Peace (30 January 2019)

Morning Encounter:

Read:

I pray that God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ will be kind to you and will bless you with peace!

Ephesians 1.2

Reflect: 

Peace is not the absence of conflict — it is ‘shalom’ or fullness of life. Peace is a rest of will that comes from divine assurance about how things will turn out. 

(Dallas Willard)

Respond: 

How will you actively be a person of peace today?

Midday Meditation:

‘May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.’

(Teresa of Avila)

Evening Reflection:

Jesus, thank you for blessing us with your presence today. You are our peace and our joy, Lord. Thank you for inviting us into a life with you. We are so quick to look for our significance and identity apart from you. Help us to continually remember that we are citizens of your kingdom! Our identity is not in our jobs, our personalities, or our past. Instead, we find great joy and rest when our identity is rooted in you and what You are doing in us. Continue to transform us, Lord. Amen.

(Teresa of Ávila)
