Doesn’t peace sound good? Summer can be so hectic …I always think when summer starts, it is going to be a relief! Ha! That is is so far from the truth! In many ways the schedule is so much busier than the school year. There is a sense of grabbing every event or activity you can, knowing it will shortly come to an end.
But this life style or the stress of living daily life cannot persist with out getting worn out. Peace. Just the word is calming. In Hannah Whitall Smith’s book, The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life, she penned this phrase; “There is such a thing as having one’s soul kept in perfect peace, now and in this life; and childlike trust in God is the key to it’s attainment.”
Ok, I’ll take that! What does it look like? An illustration Smith used in the book was about a friend who was very much struck with taking her burdens to The Lord. She could not alter her circumstances but handed them over in to His management. She then left all of the responsibility and worry and anxiety with Him. As often as they returned, she took them back to Him. As a result the circumstances remained unchanged but her soul was kept in perfect peace in the midst of them. She decided to always hand them over to the “Divine Burden-bearer” as fast as they would arise.
I find encouragement in that today, and I hope you do as well. We have done a lot of blogs on Lavender, which is a great central nervous system calmer.
