Many of us will have a favourite peace place, where we are able to re-centre and recharge. For many, it may involve being in nature and doing things like walking along the beach or amongst trees, gardening, or being in the surf. Slowing down and taking time to breathe and connect with nature provides the opportunity to gain perspective and energy. Holidays provide an ideal time to let go, laugh, and simply be.
The Easter period also reminds us of God’s promise to bring deep and lasting peace into our lives. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, God’s love shines brightly for us. We are given the sure promise that we can leave our burdens and worries with Him and be renewed by His grace and forgiveness. Taking time to be still and let this sure knowledge of God’s love and grace flow through us brings a deep sense of peace.
