Solace enters in when distractions are removed. My focus is on my unsettled soul. My desire is peaceful joy. I cannot achieve it on my own. I can look at my home and envision a new style, but it does not come to fruition without action. Likewise, I can imagine a day without anger and frustration, but without a move into the Word, it’s a fantasy. The cyclical regret of frustration, resentment, anger, and guilt is never ending unless it’s interrupted by a force stronger than itself. Scripture tells me to be anxious for nothing. It is a command from God, not a suggestion; A tried and true solution, not an idea. We sometimes act as if the Bible’s title is “A Helpful Guide to Get us Through the Rough Patches.” It is so much more! “ How to Do Life for Dummies” is more fitting! The Bible is life. It gives life where there was a death, it creates life where there was none.
A deep sigh and a recommitting to His way not mine. His word, not my feelings; contentment not contention. I find him in His creation, his Word, and always deep in my heart and soul. Sometimes I just can’t hear Him for all the static. So grateful for these still moments that bring me back to Him.
