Getting Out of CrazyTown: The Scandal of Forgiveness

I am the God of Love and Peace. Let the splendor of this glorious truth sink into the depths of your heart, mind, and spirit. The One who is always with you is the God of Love and Peace! When you feel a need for more Love, come to Me and let Me lavish it upon you. Whenever you are

Peace

The Peace that I give you transcends your intellect. When most of your mental energy goes into efforts to figure things out, you are unable to receive this glorious gift.

Psalm 46:10

Cease Striving

Green Pastures and Quiet Waters

When you walk through a day with childlike delight, savoring every blessing, you proclaim your trust in Me: your ever-present Shepherd.  Dear Jesus, I would love to go through my days with childlike delight — enjoying every blessing You provide.

Philippians 4-8

Think on These Things

  I am ever so near you, hovering over your shoulder, reading every thought. People think that thoughts are fleeting and worthless, but yours are precious to Me.
