On finding real peace.....


Excerpt from Heart to Heart with Holley.  It is so amazing how the holy spirit is working through Holly to touch my heart and my ears with exactly what I need to hear at the exact moment I need to hear it.  It also an affirmation to realize in is not a surreal moment like I use to think and is actually God guiding me in my life.  How many, many times he talked to me and I didnt hear.....I rejoice that my ears are singing with  his continual words.

I lay my head on the pillow and one phrase keeps drifting through my mind. I get up and look for it. I discover it nestled in the center of this verse, "Whoever would love life and see good days...must seek peace and pursue it." 1 Peter 3:10
Whoever would love life and see good days.
Don't we all want that?
And yet we feel as it requires more--money, time, activity.
What if it is really about less?
Perhaps it's in the less that we find what's truly more.
And here's the secret: This kind of "less" isn't even about our circumstances. We may be as busy as ever. It's simply about less of us and more of Him in the middle of wherever we are, whatever we're doing.
