Finding Peace and Stillness Through Jesus Christ

How do we avail ourselves of the Savior’s peace when anxiety seems to be an epidemic and worry and stress seem to be buzz-words or indicators of ‘a lot going on’ in our lives? Or when it rises unexpectedly?  We all need to be reminded to lay our cares before the Lord Jesus Christ in prayer trusting Him to take the load from our hearts and to carry the part that He can and already has carried, and to do it with consistency–and really leave it there, doing just our part. I think what can sustain us is to know Jesus is in the boat with us, as He was with His disciples on the storm on Galilee.

I can witness that I have felt hat stillness in the eye of the most severe spiritual storms in my life, and I can also tell you that I have sometimes let go of it in the midst of minor confusion or pedestrian twists that arise in mortality. How about you? And then I go back to my Refuge, and He always, always, always, takes unsettledness from me, and I re-group spiritually. Jesus Christ is the Way–He provides the rest stops, the stillness of being by clear waters.

About karenrose
Living out a great season of my life, thanks to Jesus Christ, and two wonderful daughters, a great life's work. Loving this opportunity to share faith online... I'm a single Mom, convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, second-gen Italian, from the East coast originally. Love the fine arts, dance, frozen yogurt, temples, scriptures, writing, jazz, helping others reach their potential, king salmon, ....and not in that order. God is good. I feel it deeply when people have a misconception of Heavenly Father or Jesus Christ, His Son, that lessens or cheapens Them and blinds one's ability to feel His presence or to trust in an ultimately good eternal end to life's circumstances.
