There is a peace I am offering to you as you share with me in the day to day activities, but also as you share your heart and mind with me through contemplation. As you engage your heart and mind with me in the issues that concern you, and the issues you do not understand, you will find my peace will become more and more evident and more and more frequent in your daily life. So engage with me in the issues that matter most to you. As you do, you will find even when you do not discover the answers you are seeking in the moment, my peace will overwhelm and comfort you, offering you refuge in the midst of a storm.
I know what you have need of even before you ask. I know the questions and worries on your mind, and I know the hurts and offenses within your heart. These things are evident already, and as you share them with me, your burden will be lifted, as your yoke is lightened. Accept the invitation of my fellowship in difficulties and stress. Accept my invitation of fellowship in the complexities of the day, as well as the simple pleasures and tasks you face. Accept my invitation to co-habitate with me in all things, casting your cares onto me, allowing me to perform the heavy lifting.
Sometimes you seek knowledge, when what you need is peace. Sometimes you seek solutions, when what you need is courage. Sometimes you seek alternatives and options when what you need is to face the unpleasantness before you, exercising your will and courage in deciding to face it. But as you share with me, and engage with me, I will make all these things known to you. I will show you what you need and feed you the morsels that will not only satisfy and sustain you, but encourage and nourish you too. I will give you what you need, but not always what you want. I will be good to you, even though you won’t always interpret it or understand it to be good in the moment.
Accept the invitation of my fellowship in all things, particularly the issues of the day, the thoughts, cares, and worries before your eyes, heart, and mind. Accept my invitation to acquire knowledge and understanding, but also to experience my overwhelming peace that will not only comfort you but sustain you as well.
