It's not often that I can get a photo like the one below. We live in a very windy part of our state. But this evening, the wind calmed and I could see a perfect reflection of the trees.
This photo got me to thinking. When I'm feeling whipped by the winds of life...when I'm focusing soley on those winds and how they are making me feel, I'm pretty miserable. But if I will just be calm, and let His peace flow over me, I can become a reflection of Him. He can still any wind, no matter how hard it blows. He can give you peace, and you can find the strength to be still.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
