Following God provides peace. This lesson teaches us to surrender each moment to God. Today we begin a lesson that we will repeat with each remaining day of this year. With each day we can be reminded that God's direction is our guide.
This holy instant would I give to You. Be You in charge. For I would follow You, Certain that Your direction gives me peace.
And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that will He also give. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. He is in charge by my request. And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son.
Quote of the Day
"Hope is born of participation in hopeful solutions. We are happy to the extent that we choose to notice and to create the reasons for happiness. Optimism and happiness are the results of spiritual work."
