In you, Lord, I have found my peace

R. In you, Lord, I have found my peace.
O LORD, my heart is not proud,
nor are my eyes haughty;
I busy not myself with great things,
nor with things too sublime for me.

R. In you, Lord, I have found my peace.
Nay rather, I have stilled and quieted
my soul like a weaned child.
Like a weaned child on its mother's lap,
so is my soul within me.

R. In you, Lord, I have found my peace.
O Israel, hope in the LORD,
both now and forever.

R. In you, Lord, I have found my peace.

Many of us wonder what peace is. Today's psalm gives us a hint. In today's world where climbing the corporate and social ladder is so revered, sometimes peace can come from not chasing after things that are too great for our minds to bear.

Bloom where you are planted. Let go and let God. Why chase after things that do not satisfy? Rest in the Lord.

Was it? It was our psalm on Sunday. I really liked it.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
