Peaceful-1

“Only God gives inward peace, and I depend on him.” (Psalms 62: 5, Contemporary English Version)

We all naturally seek peace. We know that we function with more freedom and are able to think more clearly and act more wisely when we are peaceful. We can attempt to gain that serenity, that quiet confidence, in many human ways. We can seek another’s opinion to assure us or look for a situation to change in order to feel better.

But these assurances can be variable and conditional. The outward may change but the inward composure is not truly there, real, and lasting. God, divine Love, alone can give us this “inward peace.” This is our true reliance and He is faithful to us. God’s presence is peace, and He is everywhere, actively being and expressing goodness, comfort, Life, and Love.

Mentally step away from the mortal mind’s conversations and complications. Listen to God’s voice of what is real and true—the genuine condition of things as He caused them to be. Give up the need to seek peace through material means and people and circumstances. Your loving God is at the ready, deep within, revealing His presence in your heart and His wisdom in your thought. Receive the richness of peace without argument. It is yours freely, now and always.

  1. Dear Laura, THANK YOU. As always, such inspiration and this one with a sense of peace.

    This reminds me of a lesson I learned while learning to fly. I was piloting a small 4 place Aero Commander flying out of Dayton Ohio. One day, early in my training, air was pretty turbulent. In the light plane you notice more than in a large airliner. As I flew in the air currents juggled me around left-wing would go down in the right wing, and the left-wing and right-wing as a turbulence effective the aircraft. I was busy the controls adjusting every two seconds to the wing going up or going down trying to maintain level flight. My instructor, an experienced pilot, was sitting there laughing at me. He finally said, “Pat, just take your hands off the wheel.”

    Of course I did as he suggest. It was amazing. The wings Going up and down but I maintain the level flight without all the human effort to remain stable. The wings were not going up and down any more than they had before but I was able to sit back relax with my hands off of the controls and let the aircraft just fly in peace. It felt like the plane was smiling and love being left alone to do its job.

    I felt that PEACE that comes from letting go of the controls.

    What a lesson that was for me. I still sometimes must relearn it over and over but I remember those days and how without my human intervention, the plane flew on on a steady course. And it was a good example of how when we take our hands off of the controls, we can trust the Father to keep our wings level and take us along our path.

    A helpful hint can be found in Mary Baker Eddy’s Miscellaneous Writings p363, where she says: Some people try to tend folks, as if they should steer the regulator of mankind. God makes us pay for tending the action that He adjusts.

    The regulator is governed by the principle that makes the machinery work rightly; and because it is thus governed, the folly of tending it is no mere jest. The divine Principle carries on His harmony.
