I like to sit by a slow moving stream or a calm lake. The kind of stillness that reflects the shore line like a mirror. There’s a sense of peace I gain by just being there – for a moment, for an hour. Time stands still. I do know however that the calm pool can run deep, can be healing, and refreshing.
Do you like to sit by still waters?
From Psalm 23: “he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.”
“A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”
John 15:13-15, KJV
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.”
Revelation 3:20, KJV
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
May the peace that surpasses our understanding keep you surrounded in grace, love, and joy.
