Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

You are capable of being peaceful

on July 3, 2013

“You don’t have to let the surroundings and occurrences of your world bring you stress. You can choose to give them love and appreciation. Instead of handing out judgments about every little frustration, annoyance and disturbance, you can exude peace and positive purpose. Instead of letting life get to you, let real, authentic joy flow forth from you. You are perfectly capable of being ever peaceful, even though you may not always be in peaceful surroundings. You are easily and naturally able to be continually positive, regardless of what may come your way. The quality of your life in every moment is your decision. Peace is not a place or even an external condition, but a choice of how you are. Let go of conflicting thoughts about how life is supposed to be. Live life simply and purely as you choose to be. Enjoy the immense richness that is always within you, and around you, and extending infinitely out from you. Choose love, peace, joy and positive purpose in every moment, and feel how outstandingly good it is to give life your very best.” —Ralph Marston

When I first read this today, I felt like I’ll never get there. If only I could do this, if only I am capable of this. But with an attitude like that, things won’t ever seem achievable. I need to be hopeful and make an effort. Even it’s one step at a time. I need to think and know, that I am capable of being peaceful, capable of joy, capable of being positive, and capable of a pure and simple life.

I will ask for God’s grace and guidance to live my life in peace. For God tells us, in 2 Chronicles 20:15,17, “Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of this large army. The battle is not your battle, it is God’s. You won’t need to fight in this battle. Just stand strong in your places, and you will see the Lord save you. Judah and Jerusalem, don’t be afraid or discouraged, because the Lord is with you.”
