No matter what you may face today, God has promised you inner peace. Probably…you’ve already begun making mental lists. Sorting the things that have to be done from those you’d like to take care of. And bracing yourself for today’s unexpected challenges.
Wait! Take a deep breath…or two. Quiet your thoughts and your heart. The pressures of this day won’t go away. But you can face them from a place of inner peace. Remind yourself of this:
You’re not alone. Our comforting God is with you, supporting you.
When you are tempted to respond in haste or frustration…pause for a moment and let God quiet the storms you will face today.
Help me, O Lord, to draw on your peace and guidance today. Amen.
