I am glad to be sitting down, and talking to you today! I have been busy, running around because I seem to have been hit with a spring fever. Away with the dark green table cloth in the dining room, bring out the pastels colors and celebrate new beginnings!
Peace seems to hit us in the same way sometimes. It comes from the depths of our spirit, but can only stay when Christ has washed us, cleansed us, and given us much needed grace. We need washing over and over again. His presence and His Holy Spirit never tire of making us fresh and new.
This washing is like a great river that flows from the throne of God. It carries away all that is not God. The cleansing that it brings makes you brighter than the whitest snow. It is a fruit of the Spirit of God.
We can cultivate this in our lives by keeping His Word before us at all times. I don't mean that you walk around with your Bible open all day, but in your mind you are meditating on the promises of God. "Write them on your doorposts of our house and on your gates, that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth. Deuteronomy 11:20-21.
The reason God said to do this on the doors was so that they would see what God wanted every time they were ready to leave., and on the gates also. I think we could do something similar. Maybe write scripture where we would see it every day, some people put a verse on there mirror in the bathroom. Others use their car, but wherever you choose it will help you to keep your mind on peaceful things, and that is what God is after.
