Come To Me, and rest in My Peace.  My Face is shining upon you, in rays of Peace transcending understanding.  Instead of trying to figure things out yourself, you can relax in the Presence of the One who knows everything.  As you lean on Me in trusting dependence, you feel peaceful and complete.  This is how I designed you to live:  in close communion with Me.

  

When you are around other people, you tend to cater to their expectations -- real or imagined.  You feel enslaved to pleasing them, and your awareness of My Presence grows dim.  Your efforts to win their approval eventually exhaust you.  You offer these people dry crumbs rather than the living waterof My Spirit flowing through you.  This is not My way for you!  Stay in touch with Me, even during your busiest moments.  Let My Spirit give you words of grace as you live in the Light of My Peace.

  

  

Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV) 
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.   

  

John 7:38 (NIV) 
38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him."   

  

Ephesians 5:18-20 (NIV) 
18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. 
19 Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, 
20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
