My Love Brings Peace

As you know, the guidance I give is for your health and well-being.
Everyone craves peace, love and joy in their lives.
As you live My ways they bring the abundant life you desire.
My ways are peaceful and loving!
By practicing My commands and direction, you begin to be
peaceful and loving in your interactions with others.
I come to bring you abundant life, because I love and care for you.
Recall how you were touched with the kindnesses of others.
Allow others to experience the same unexpected thoughtfulness from you.
When you start to give those words of encouragement in My Name, You will begin to realize no act of kindness goes unnoticed in My kingdom.

This month I had the opportunity to think of those acts of kindness. When I am rushed, I am easily irritated and not the gracious person I want to be. However, I am still, waiting to hear from Him, I sense the presence of God.  Sometimes I say the name of Jesus frequently throughout the day.   This helps me slow down and enjoy people more, becoming quieter and more thoughtful to others. Philippians 4:6,7 (NIV) “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
