Inner Peace - Dr. James A. Lee

Inner Peace - 


Inner Peace
AS I FOCUS ON GOD, I AM FILLED WITH PEACE.
The Hebrew Bible includes countless examples of people making offerings to God of food, objects or animals. What if the offering I made to the Divine today was my undivided attention?
I begin by settling into a quiet space and making God my focal point. I consciously withdraw my focus from the tasks I have before me today. Any concerns that remain are gently accepted as I nudge my full awareness back to God, back to the present moment.
Having laid this offering of attention at the altar of the Divine, I feel a reciprocal gift of inner peace rising up from within. When I leave this time and return to my day, I share the gift of peace with everyone I meet.
The people … sacrificed at the high places, but only to the Lord their God.—2 Chronicles 33:17
