There is a peace like a gentle river that comes from within our soul when our self becomes aligned to the mind of God. This peace is the source of tranquility, power, and strength. It is when we are at our creative best.
When we are at peace with ourselves and with God we can bring peace to others—individuals, groups, family, and even the world. It is possible to have world peace and order but only if everyone submits to the will of God. Idealistic? Yes. Impossible? All things are possible with God who said, ” If my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” ((2 Chronicles 7:14)
George Washington once stated, ” My first wish is to see the whole world in peace and the inhabitants of it as one band of brothers.” What a wonderful goal to aspire to!
As we listen to the sound of water caressing the riverbed rocks, let us imagine that this water is flowing into our soul–the river of God….As we surrender our will to the plans of our heavenly Father, we will notice that we are in one accord with our Creator, the sustainer of all life. Is there any better place to be? (Judy Whittaker)
