Finding Joy in “Having Peace”…Day Six.

IMG_9795-2

I use to hear people say “take it one day at a time” but I only heard not listened. As you know, going through Life trials will quickly teach you that today is all that we can properly take on or were meant to take on. Fretting over our yesterdays and worrying about our tomorrows is just too big of a burden to carry; it will ware us out spiritually , emotionally and even physically.  We can live in peace, joy and hope one day at a time because: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Today I find Joy in having peace!

Do we ever listen?

Being still is so hard, at least for me it is. I am not talking about physically still. I am talking about mentally still. We talk and talk and talk. Not just with our mouth but in our head.
We talk when we pray… we try to be still but out head is talking about worry. It is talking about worldly things. It is talking about selfish things. Do we ever listen? We need to be still in our heart and in our mind to hear God. We find him in our stillness. We need to drop our hands, relax and reflect on what God can do for us that we cannot do for ourselves, give him thanks and listen…
