"Peace, I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27
It is crucial to prioritize peace in the midst of busyness for our mental sanity. When life gets overwhelming with different hurdles, celebrations, ups and downs, it can be burdensome; often leading to burn out if we don't take time to sit and pause. The practice of "being" allows us to live every day at the beat of our heart than constantly striving for the next thing. When we do life feels like we're on a hamster wheel. That's when God tells us to come lay everything down and to rest in His arms. Peace isn't found in the absence of a storm. Peace is found in the presence of God. Do everything in gratitude.
