"And let the peace of Christ control your hearts ... " - Colossians 3:15
During a recent troubling time, I found myself sitting before a candle and just gazing at its light. The dancing flame mesmerized my thoughts. As I emptied my mind and let myself be absorbed into the moment, I experienced such peace. My troubles were lifted and a soothing calm warmed my body.
Such peace. I never thought that I could find such peace in the mix of anxiety and fear.
The LORD is my shepherd;
there is nothing I lack.
In green pastures he makes me lie down;
to still waters he leads me;
he restores my soul.
He guides me along right paths
for the sake of his name.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff comfort me.
- Psalm 23:1-4
