I am centered in the peace of God.

Even though I know the peace of God lies within me, there are times when I am drawn away from that peace. Perhaps I feel challenged by life's circumstances or overwhelmed by my responsibilities. If I wish to return to the peace of God, I needn't go looking for it outside myself. I need only take a moment to remember.

Jesus went apart from his followers to pray and center himself. Going apart can simply mean changing my thinking. I quiet my mind and feel the calmness of Spirit. I rest in the silence for a moment. When my thoughts return, I allow gratitude and appreciation to fill my mind and heart, reconnecting me with God's peace at the center of my being.

He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace! Be still!" Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm.--Mark 4:39
