It may take God

Alejandro García Restrepo

Today, God, help me focus on a peaceful pace rather than a harried one.

I will keep moving forward gently, not frantically.

Help me let go of my need to be anxious, upset, and harried.

Help me replace it with a need to be at peace and in harmony.

~ Melody Beattie, from “Going Easy” in The Language of Letting Go

    Lord, the day will unfold as you see fit.
    Help me to believe in it’s unfolding.

  9. God is order. Order is peace. The madness of this world is like the effects of a storm. Anyone who chooses God will find themselves in the calm of the eye of any storm that this world is capable of.

  10. I’d say your blog is one of the 7 corners of the world I come to for Peace and Grace, to recharge and reset.

    Thank God, for Live & Learn.

  12. I tell myself that every day. Some days when I’m harried at work and need to slow down, I tell myself I’m royalty and I have to slow down so I don’t crinkle my train in back!
