Peace beckons from within.
Many of us have found ourselves at some point in our lives asking for a sign—a sign to let us know we will make it through a trying situation, that everything will be okay; a sign to put our troubled hearts and minds at ease. Yet we know peace doesn’t come from outside of us—peace emanates from within. As we engage in prayer and silent meditation, we untangle tightly knotted worries. We release the practice of reliving a past we cannot change or worrying about a future that may never happen. Peace beckons us from within. As we respond to the call of peace, we relax into an experience of inner stillness, one which no outer sign can provide and no outer circumstance can take away.
Peace be to you; do not fear.—Judges 6:23
