Remember to pray for peace + almost 39 weeks

When you are two days shy of 39 weeks pregnant…. you pray for peace…

I felt a lot of emotion today and was reminded the basics by a loved one…

Pray for peace…

If you believe in a higher power, as I do, you remember that He is in control.

I felt in a place of questioning my thoughts of worry….and my intuition…

How do you know when it’s worry and how do you  know when it’s intuition?

I realized that the thought must then shift to…. I give this up to you, Lord…. I pray for your peace and continued protection…

Do I really have to be reminded to pray for peace?

Yes!

Amongst all the emotions, commotions, and daily experiences that can be overwhelming, scary, sad and worrisome…. it’s easy to be swirling around in the eye of the storm and forget…

Fear is not real….Danger…is very real….

This is the line I questioned….

I realized…and perhaps decided…. that it’s not a matter of just doing our best….

It’s a matter of being at peace with our lives…

If we can be at peace with our world…. that is the best we can be because in a state of peace we have released the worry, guilt and fear… we leave doubt at the door…

…and choose peace…we feel at peace…

Peace must be cultivated

I believe that in today’s world, we must cultivate a state of peace…a peace of mind….

There are so many negative influences….negative vibrations…that put us in a place of fear, doubt, worry….and loss…

For those who have seen it all…heard it all…. been to the dark side and back…. they tell their stories….and others tell theirs… and we have very real experiences that shape our lives…and our minds…

Fear is not real…Danger…is very real…

We know all the things that can go wrong… we’ve read of them…. heard of them…even lived them…

Who has the harder time finding peace….the one who has been to the dark side…seen loss and suffering….or the one who hasn’t experienced the same levels of…. tragedy…suffering…?

We do not know what we do not know…we do not know what God has written for us… we can only choose to listen and be willing to accept His guidance.

Through this emotional time, I feel very blessed and my bottom line is revealing itself very clearly:

I feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude….and compassion….and what I need to do is give to others….share…..love….give….just….love….more….and often….

Why is there loss and sadness in the world?

I do not know…. but what I do know….is that my gratitude is hugely inspiring me to help and serve….

Ask less questions…be less quick to judge….

Everyone is going through their own journey and although I may feel strongly about this topic or that…. be less quick to judge….and love more

It doesn’t matter the choices we make as much as the intention and peace we make them with…

It doesn’t matter the opinions we have of others as much as the compassion, forgiveness and love we can have in our  hearts for them…

As I whole-heartedly pray for my own peace, I fully pray for the peace of others…that we may all be gifted with His peace and love…. always…
