My reflection today:
“We can’t always be peaceful and loving, even when we have the best intentions. Unexpected events can stimulate fear. Buttons can be pushed. A burst of anger can lead to words we later regret. No emotion is right or wrong. All emotions are natural.
It is so important that we be gentle with ourselves and accept our emotions without judgment, no matter what is going on. Acceptance releases negative energy.
Just knowing that there are times when we are powerless over our feelings can be the beginning of peace. Turning our emotions over to a power greater than ourselves, and trusting that God can and will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves, can bring us peace.” – Ruth Fishel
Today’s reflection, again reminds us how God is present with us at all times.
Many times we just need to stop, and tap into that presence within us.
One thing that this pandemic has taught me is how important reflection time is in my life.
In spite of all that’s going on, I find myself more at peace because I’m taking more time to be in touch with God’s presence within me. ?
