My love for life is not dependant upon my circumstances. Whether I'm excited to be beginning a new adventure or content with everything as it is, I love life. Even if I have a concern about something or someone, I know that God is present, leading, supporting, and carrying us through.
I am conscious of the order and balance throughout life--the obstacles and the opportunities, the extraordinary and the ordinary. I appreciate life and all expressions of it.
Being fully present in each moment, I am grounded in the presence of God within me. I experience joy in knowing that the activity of God is working on my behalf at all times. Making the most of each moment, I love life fully and completely, and I thank God for the experience of it all.
"Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life."--Proverbs 4:23
One with the ever-present peace of God, I experience perfect tranquility.
There is peace within my soul that I can bring into expression in any moment. Because I am at peace within, I respond with compassion and make mindful choices when circumstances seem troubling.
Following any disturbing experience, I find a place where I can once more turn within to be at one with the indwelling peace of God. Closing my eyes and allowing my breath to become steady, I feel my inner serenity grow and strengthen.
The peace of God inspires me and guides me in helping others find peace. Words of support and acts of kindness help me build a circle of peace within my family, workplace, and community that strengthens my own sense of tranquility.
"Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, 'The word of the Lord that you have spoken is good.' For he thought, 'There will be peace and security in my days.'"--Isaiah 39:8
