And the journey continues…lessons on Peace and it’s intentional blessing that comes forth when unveiled along your life’s journey into God’s Unique Pre-planned purpose called “YOUR LIFE”!
Peace in the Pace (Part 1)
The existence of God profoundly embedded in the core foundation of my life creates an intimate reality that God never leaves or forsakes me regardless of the steps I take moving to and fro this journey called life.
We must solidify that into every core or our thoughts that god is and shall always be with us inevitably the situation it is incumbent that we choose and remain settled calm and resolute in the posture of peace. Peace defines our countenance internally and externally. Peace sets the stage AMID scenarios that plays out before us. If we experience serenity god resides and guides. If we endure impediments god envelopes and assures. If we encounter tragedy god comforts and embraces. If isolated in a quandary god confirms and amplifies truth in faithful obedience.
There is a peace in the pace. There is an attitude that exudes confidence in god’s word. Relationship breeds knowledge. Wisdom reveals time spent through the midst of development. Development is built by simply taking steps daily progressions in and through life.
Yes, there are times experienced that are lovely and welcomed bliss. Yes, there are times experienced that are uncomfortable decisions and pressures. Yes, there are times of prolific grace abounding through the exponential weight of pain, pressure, disgrace, solace, separation, distraught, anger, hurt, and disappointment. In those unbearable moments, it is a unfathomable intercession and interaction that occurs. God is there. Our father who art in heaven knows the plight we encounter on earth and he cares. He never leaves us or forsakes us but he relates and removes doubt. The absence of him would breed fear but the acceptance that god would never lead us without carrying us cements courage to continue.
What is peace in the pace?
THESE principles precedes every experience that creates the moments of our life’s journey. Those concepts become birthed and nurtured daily as we proceed along our path. There is absolutely no way to exist without an experience of grace, mercy, and insight of who god is for us intimately and without waiver. When we have a RELATIONSHIP, this is created in time spent knowing, living, laughing, loving, sharing, learning, crying, and being. When we are intimate, we shed every mask of bolstering fakeness and strip every preconceived notion to just present a raw canvass innocent, naïve, and needy. We bare our soul in hope that the choice made to trust is not met with humiliation and unfulfillment. It is refreshing to remain in peace like drinking a cold drink of water during humid temperatures. Awareness is heightened once we experience an absolute uncontroversial intervention where god’s supreme essence no longer gets questioned by us. An innate ability to decipher with precise clarity greets the crossroads in our pathways. There is no longer a limp in our walk or a slump in our frame when we have been touched by the mater’s hand. Just like the woman who pressed through a crowd of naysayers and obstacles to get to her intended goal, we too realize that wholeness occurs from our persistence to proceed without caution into our purpose. Definitive moments demonstrate indelible monuments. The posture to press intercepts the paradigm of predestine, which reveals the position of peace. Strength that invades weakness occurs when we reside in peace. Every frail intention evaporates in the PRESENCE OF power. God is omnipotent. We who are called by God’s his name and follow his precepts inherit this same nature. Inconceivable blessings unfold for the one who trusts in god. Yet, this decision to trust comes with an expectation that the lord truly is our shepherd who oversees our very existence. No shadow will mar our eyesight and present distortions to the vision. Doubt attempts to creep into the unsteady and doubleminded but expectation that is fraught with backup never waivers. Joyful expression seeps out of one who has been involved with the divine “I AM “and nothing will alter that resolve. There is a completeness surrounding the environment where peace lives. Joy excavates the landscape to establish venues to thrive without anxiety. The key to light is that no switch can remove its intention for focused living. The arrow will meet the center of a bullseye every time shot from a focused archer. Twists, turns, roadblocks, indentions, and gullies are there in everyone’s life; but a determined person will proceed through it all to grasp their goals.
That we know our life exists eternally because our master breathes air into our body is peace in the pace.

Psalm 23 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

A Psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.
2 He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters.
3 He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him—not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake.
4 Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with [a]oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.
6 Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.
- Psalm 23:5 It is difficult for those living in a temperate climate to appreciate, but it was customary in hot climates to anoint the body with oil to protect it from excessive perspiration. When mixed with perfume, the oil imparted a delightfully refreshing and invigorating sensation. Athletes anointed their bodies as a matter of course before running a race. As the body, therefore, anointed with oil was refreshed, invigorated, and better fitted for action, so the Lord would anoint His “sheep” with the Holy Spirit, Whom oil symbolizes, to fit them to engage more freely in His service and run in the way He directs—in heavenly fellowship with Him.
