Where is peace? More than any previous time on earth, we are in and surrounded by multi crises which are threatening our very existence. Turning inward to listen to God's message, I sit silently, quieting my mind, and turn to the scriptures to speak to me. And then I journal.
Psalm 34:14 Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
Journaling: I open my journal and write the scripture, then I start writing free flow, not paying attention to spelling, grammar or sentence structure.
I write in prayer form. My words might be something like this-
Lord, I do not think of myself as doing evil. How am I to understand this scripture? Am I somehow responsible for evil being done? How am I to seek peace and pursue it? Open my eyes and my heart to your peace.
What you write is likely to be different. What is your prayer? Please share with me.
Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul. For my yoke is easy and my burden light.
Journaling: My prayer writing - Jesus, I am weary and I need rest. Let me feel your gentle love and peace in my heart. My life and the world is so troubled. Take my hand and lead me in your ways. Fill me with your peace.
What is your prayer? Please share with me.
Blessings my friends, Judy
