Essence of PEACE

Whilst  the medical prescription is to PACE

My Spiritual Well-Being craves PEACE

I cannot move past Priorities without this

Singular Importance

Emmanuel

God-With-Us

Thus to

PACE with God

Becomes PEACE

Emmanuel

Not God far away

Nor God past and future

All I need is God right now

God here in all of this with me

So the Master is going to give you a sign anyway. Watch for this: A girl who is presently a virgin will get pregnant. She’ll bear a son and name him Immanuel (God-With-Us). Isaiah  7 v 14  The Message Bible

 

Jesus – Son of God

Born, skin on

To Experienced the Human Condition

To Experience

Our Difficulties

Our Limitations

Our Frustrations

Our Pain

God my first Priority

To be Aware of Him in everything

Around me

Within

In all I do

All I endure

Being Aware

I will search for Him

I will seek His lesson for the moment

I will listen for Him in my Prayers

Knowing He knows best

And wants the best for me

I will grow as He directs

I desire His Love

His Calm

His Pace

His Rhythms

His Seasons of Grace

Every chance I have

To Express my thanks

To Express merci

To Express compassion

To Express Him

In creativity

In Word

In Image

In the stitches of a quilt

In the warmth of hearth

In wholesomeness of table

In kindness to others

In the fragrance, colour and form

Of Garden

In Creation

In Re creation

I will find Him in His Word

True to His Word

I will give Him leave to Love me

Calmly Trusting Him

I desire Intimate Relationship

With Him

In Him

To remember Him

In every moment

I do not always manage it

Often leaving Him behind

In my Eagerness to do

Often ‘found’ where I think He ought to be

Rather than truly seeking Him where He leads

Human condition is fickle

Believing ourselves in Control

We Take Charge

And take off

Wondering why God lost us

Stand

Turn

Desire with all your heart

Emmanuel

Find His PEACE
