Hy’s been telling me all along to have peace in my life, and if I don’t, then change it. I kept trying to find peace even when things seem turned upside down around me, but somehow I couldn’t seem to find it way down deep in my soul. So, I kept praying that God would give it to me, since I couldn’t seem to find it for myself.
Last week when I was talking to a friend of mine, I realized that I had no idea how to RECEIVE ease and grace. My life for so long had been full of someone else’s craziness, that I had no idea how to operate in an environment where I wasn’t bombarded with emotional chaos on a near daily basis. All I expected was this continued chaos. Well, what the mind believes reality receives and that’s exactly what I continued to receive.
I really thought long and hard on this concept of receiving ease and grace. I even wrote it on my bathroom mirror and read it out loud every day. It seems to have taken hold somewhere and something feels like it’s starting to shift for me. Walking through the days seems a little easier knowing that I can lean into my faith and trust that no matter what is going on, I have ease and grace in my core.
Sometimes God calms the storm… and sometimes He calms the child.
