What brings Life: a reflection

Love. Joy. Peace.

These are life-giving states of being. When I am full of love, I bring love to others.
When I am full of the Joy of my Lord, I emanate joy and others can catch it.

When I walk in God’s Shalom – His peace which passes all understanding – I offer peace to others.

Those things which bring life to us, when shared, bring life to others.

I’m realising, as I allow myself to surrender to what comes along┬ámy path, that I have more peace, because I’m surrendered to the unfolding events of the day. I have more joy, because within me is hope, strength and a rejoicing in the Lord who gives me my breath. And I have more love, because I am “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) and that my soul knows very well.

I am loved for who I am, not for what I do; that is satisfying and an encouragement that reaches out to others, both naturally and supernaturally.

Love. Joy. Peace. To be received and to be shared. Hallelujah!
