Peace Surprises Me
This morning I felt an extraordinary sense of calm and blessing as I prayed and turned to devotional sites that I frequent. Each site I visited seemed to have a special message for me relating to what I was experiencing in my morning quiet time. I am overwhelmed by the great sense of God's presence and the feelings of peace and reassurance that the path I am traveling is the right one for me. During the trip I am on with my family, I thought that the constant busyness would leave me feeling anxious and stressed, but just the opposite has occurred, and I am finding time to be alone with my thoughts and to have the silent time I need to experience God's presence. During the day, I am discovering many moments when I believe God is calling me to stop and experience the peace that God gives.
