Inner Peace

dw_bird.jpgI breathe into this moment of tranquility and experience the peace of God.

On the wall inside the Unity Peace Chapel are the words that Jesus spoke to quiet a storm at sea: "Peace, Be Still." These three powerful words are a reminder for me to claim the peace that is within me.

In prayer, I breathe into a precious time of tranquility and experience the peace of God within every fiber of my being. My awareness of God's gentle, loving presence assures me that all is calm. Within my heart and soul, whatever the time or circumstances of my experience, God is present.

In times of both quiet and activity, I speak the words "Peace! Be still!" Connecting with the truth of this statement, I am at peace.
"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.... And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, 'Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?' "--Mark 4:39, 41
