Living in Peace

“Peace begins with a smile..” ― Mother Teresa

I believe if I took a poll of my readers about 'peace' in their lives, I might discover that peace is rare.  As I write often, we tend to chose the other path away from peace each day.  Perhaps this day you could think about it and find peace today.

Peace begins inside of you. You can be peaceful and calm in the midst of the storm. Take yourself to a silent place and reconnect with peace.  Meditation or having a mantra helps but you have to remember to do it. Repeating a phrase will seem silly at first, but you must stay with it and make it a habit and then it becomes natural.  One favorite is "Be Still and know that I am God."  Another might be "Thrust and Trust"... meaning thrust away your worries and trust in God. One of my go to phrases is "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want" and a second one is that old child's song, "My God is so big, so strong and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do."

Inner peace is from God and it is inside of you right now.  Find it.
