My Peace I Give to You

Posted on

The birds, high above in the trees, chirp their welcome. They sing with their various whistles for all the world to hear. An ant crawls across the grass with determination, a rabbit scampers, then stops to look at me quizzically, then hops on.

The sounds of natures are all around me and the peace I feel as the cool water ripples around, over, and between the rocks downstream is calming. The smells of nature fills my nostrils. I breathe slowly in and slowly let it out.

In times when we have thoughts invade our mind or the worries of life invade causing our peace to skitter away we can take a moment and visualize our safe peaceful place. We all have an image of where we would like to be, a place that fills us with peace. Some may find that peace fills them as they sit by a flowing brook and some may find that peace standing high on a mountain top looking out over a scenic view, while others may find it as they walk a long sandy beach with the sea breeze kissing their cheek, but wherever we find it God will take us there.

In times when things seem overwhelming we can stop and take a few minutes and ask the Lord to take us to our peaceful place. He knows where it is. For me I see myself in my mind’s eye sitting under a large tree next to a flowing stream. I hear the birds, I see the rippling water and hear its sounds as it gently meanders downstream to its destination. It’s path has been determined by God and nature and to sit there quietly, with no thoughts, brings peace.

Christ said it is His peace He gives us. His peace seeps into my soul and gives me calm. It replaces the worries, it replaces the memories of the past, it fills those spaces that the enemy wants to invade. Sitting quietly, Jesus has arrived. He sits down beside me and we quietly bask in the beauty. My peace is complete.

“Now the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always by all means.” 2Thes. 3:16
