Scripture

«Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but those who plan peace have joy.»

Proverbs 12:20

Thought

May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us.

– Teresa of Avila

Prayer

Here is a song from Taize that is based on a poem from Teresa of Avila. The poem says:

Nada te turbe, nada te espante (Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you,)
Quien a Dios tiene, nada le falta (The one who has God lacks nothing)
Nada te turbe, nada te espante (Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you,)
Solo Dios basta (God alone is enough)

Take a moment to listen to this song and feel the peace of God. When the song is done pray:

Lord, I thank You for Your peace, and help me to always rest in Your peace. Amen.
