Simplicity

Updated: May 1



“Jesus said to His disciples, ‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give it to you.  Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.’” John 14:27


I love it when the dawn breaks in the morning with a small quiet mist that floats in the air.  The cacophony of birds chirping.  Their melodious morning song echoes out as though they are singing praises to God in heaven along with the heavenly hosts.  All is quiet and still.  My soul is at peace as I turn my heart and gaze towards God.  The blessing of such a quiet, still morning is immeasurable. A simple pleasure in life and yet at times I fail to avail myself of this gift.  Especially when I allow my day to start without turning all my attention and being to the One who created me.  Yet not this morning.  No, this morning, I am immersed in all of creation.


As I sit on my patio, looking out into my backyard, the scripture words of Jesus emanate in my soul.  “Peace, I leave with you, My peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give it.  Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”  I don’t think there are words that adequately describe this peace that Jesus gives to me.   This quiet peace allows everything in me to stand still.  My thoughts.  My body. My soul. 

  

As I sit in the quiet, a worried thought comes to mind about my family, yet before I allow it to take root, I hand it over to God.  I ask Him to take care of my family.  After all, He knows what they need better than I do.  He loves them more than I could ever love them.  


This simple act of handing over to God my worries has become the lesson for this day.  I will let God handle my difficulties so that my soul can remain at peace.  In this act of handing over, my faith and trust in God increases.  No profound words or thoughts, just simplicity. Simplicity in this moment.  Simplicity for the day.


Today, I give thanks to God for His beautiful creation and the dawning of this day. I hand over all my worries and concerns to God and ask Him to take care of everything.   I will allow God’s peace and simplicity to fill my soul.
