Scripture: Proverbs 14:30
A peaceful mind gives life to the body, but jealousy rots the bones.
Thought for the Day: Where is your peaceful place? What is your peaceful time? The when and the where will look different for different people, but it is important to know what helps create an experience of peacefulness within us. As I mentioned in a recent post, I am a beach person at both sunrise and sunset. Give me those colors with the sound of the surf, and I can be transported away from the chaos and craziness of life. It might only be for a few moments, but it is an appreciated reprieve. Yet recently I was listening to a YouTube video with sound of the ocean, and as I closed my eyes, I was given a few moments of respite. There are times when our God-given imaginations become the vehicle to the when and where of our peacefulness. It is not so much escapism as it is sabbath rest for the soul. In this season of Advent when we speak often of peace, let us be mindful of how peace begins with us and within us.
Prayer: Let me be clear, O Spirit of Peace, about the things that bring me peacefulness. Let me be intentional about self care, specifically doing the necessary work to bring a peacefulness to my life. Amen.
