Wise men still seek Him not through study or intellectual knowledge, but in the depth, silence and peace of their own hearts. Dear and sweet Lord, in this new year filled with new distractions please help us to choose Your Peace over the chaos.
Your peace you have freely given, but in our helplessness we still haven’t chosen it. Please take our hands and lead us to choose Your Peace!
I am reading The Book of my Life by Saint Teresa of Avila translated by Mirabai Starr.
I just read the following passage by Saint Teresa of Avila, only a short 30 min after I readily joined in a conversation complaining about the politicians, leaders and the media in our country.
If some of our leaders have gone bad, the good people shine even more brightly. May it please God to hold such souls in His hand and help them to help us. Amen.
If only we could all remember this each time we are faced with an opportunity to complain about our leaders.
Jesus please help me remember this the next time this choice presents itself.
