After decades of being told children need to be kept busy to keep them out of trouble and enable them to live a happy, healthy life, it seems as if we now have generations of people who have never learned to relish the quiet stillness that God requires for relationship with Him. Turn off the radio, television, and computer, set your phone aside, find a comfy chair, pray, and listen. Your life will take a much more meaningful turn for the better despite what is going on in it and the world. If only I had learned this earlier and taught my children the same. No regrets, only lessons learned.
“When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
