God created you and all your brothers. As you realize that you are as God created you and so are your brothers, you walk in peace and purpose. As you realize that you were created at this time, to live and be in the place where you live and with the people that surround you, you realize this is so for everyone. You realize you were appointed for this path.
As you allow God to guide you, you realize you are following, surrendering and not leading. Allow the journey to give you joy and peace.
I follow in the way appointed me.
I have a special place to fill; a role for me alone. Salvation waits until I take this part as what I choose to do. Until I make this choice, I am the slave of time and human destiny. But when I willingly and gladly go the way my Father's plan appointed me to go, then will I recognize salvation is already here, already given all my brothers and already mine as well.
Father, Your way is what I choose today. Where it would lead me do I choose to go; what it would have me do I choose to do. Your way is certain, and the end secure. The memory of You awaits me there. And all my sorrows end in Your embrace, which You have promised to Your Son, who thought mistakenly that he had wandered from the sure protection of Your loving Arms.
Quote of the Day
"Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we're frantic, life will be frantic. If we're peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace. Our internal state determines our experience of our lives; our experiences do not determine our internal state."
