Weekly Quote 65 - with commentary from the School of Truth

The peace of God, which passes all understanding - (Phil 4:7)
Your peace is ever with me, dear Father

Peace is like joy - it is the hand of our Father resting on our shoulder as we traverse the hills and valleys of life, assuring us that all is well. We do not have to "find" peace, it is ever available, even in the tumult of our day. Our Father is not disturbed by any thoughts, feelings and actions which do His work.

"Thou dost keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee" was the joyous cry of the prophet Isaiah. Peace to the navigator in a storm who tells us that we are on course and clear of all hazards. It may bewilder others to see us thus, like the humourous office poster which says "If you can keep your head amidst all this you do not understand the situation."

It is in the nature of our attunement to God that we do not wait for Him to bring us things. Instead we become those things. We take one step towards Him and he runs out to meet us. In your meditations feel His peace, feel it during your day, and recall it should it temporarily become distant.
