Peace

I had a hard day. Emotions are running high, my heart is aching, and I feel like things are spinning out of control.

I took a little break from it all. I had to – for my sake, for my family’s sake. The cool temperatures, the windows rolled down, the sound of the tires hitting the pavement, and a sunset like this do wonders for your emotions.

As I took some deep breaths and listened to the hum of my car, I started humming myself. I felt the spirit. I calmed down. I felt peace. I know this isn’t my battle to fight, and I know the Lord has everything under control. Tonight, I am even more grateful for a Father in Heaven who has a plan for each one of us, a purpose for each one of us, knows us by name, knows what we are feeling and going through. I have to lean on Him during this time and let it go. It is out of my hands, and I'm actually quite relieved. Things will work out - they always do, and it's not because of what WE do. It's because of what HE does.

Try it sometime – a drive, windows down, no radio on. You will be amazed at what kind of person you are when you return home.

Yes, we can all relate! It's good advice for everyone to step back once in a while and enjoy the peace the Spirit can bring.
