Where is peace?

This delightful picture is from my Mary Engelbreit 2011 calendar.
Where is peace?

It is in doing the right thing at this very moment.

But what about my pain? What about how much my heart hurts? What about all the things that are wrong in my life?

You hurt because of the way you think. If you want the hurt to go away, you must think differently. You must let go of the hurt and do the right thing right now.

But what is the right thing?

Study the life of Jesus Christ. His life is the perfect example of right. His life shows us that "right" is all about a relationship of trust in God and surrender to the will of God.

Life is supposed to be a time in which we are being made into the image of His chosen one--His Son.

That's all. That's it. It's that simple at the core.

We must choose to trust Jesus and then study Him; then make the choices that reflect His example.

When this becomes a moment by moment reality, life is transformed! We have hope, we have energy, we have purpose, we have love.

Happiness flows naturally as peace settles over us.
