How’s your peace level today?
It seems everyone is in a crisis to one extent or another.
Turn on the news, and there’s not a sliver of hope.
Turn on the talk shows, and there’s nothing but sarcasm and ridicule.
Turn on social media, and it’s either cynicism or disbelief, hatred or dictatorship.
Where do you find peace, hope and love?
Where do you find sanity for your mind and solitude for your soul?
Step outside and let the cares wash away.
Step down to the river and allow the fears to fade into the ripples.
Listen to the birds that sing; they neither toil nor spin.
Listen to the breeze and the trees; they neither fret nor frown.
Maybe we should take a few lessons from the Creator of creation.
Maybe we should step beyond the noise and take a seat down by the river.
Psalm 23:2, “He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.”
