Jewels On My Path


“If you had known., especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace.” Luke 19:42

Oh my! Oh my! Who of us are not searching with all our might for the ‘things that make for our peace.’ That precious commodity, the ‘peace that passes understanding.’ Why is it so elusive? Perhaps because we are so often much like the Pharisees of old - looking for it while focused on our own understanding, our own desires, our own concept of how life should work.

Here I am at 7:02 AM at the beginning of “this my day” with the promise that God will scatter the jewels that ‘make for my peace’ along my path. Will my eyes be so fixed on Him that I will see them or will my focus be such that they will be ‘hidden.’ Even legal blindness cannot hide them from me if I choose to see them. This is God’s grace at work. Can you hear my praise?
