THE GIFT OF PEACE
By Rev. Alan A. Rotham
Is there any greater gift than peace: peace of mind, peace of soul, where we release any anxiety or fear that we may have in life? The Prince of Peace is right here with us. As we surrender to that, as we give ourselves to that... as we let go and let God, anxiety leaves us.
It doesn't mean we don't do anything. We are moved by Spirit to do the things that are ours to do, and we are centered in peace, centered in the very presence of God.
This Christmas let an inner smile of appreciation, gratitude and trust fill your heart as you remember your own true nature and see it in all whom you meet as you silently say, "The Christ in me greets the Christ in you, for to us a child is born."
There will be peace and security in my days. --- Isaiah 39:8
