Enjoy the stillness.
Feel peace in the air around you.
Now close your eyes and escape with me. Imagine if you will the scenes of joyful times past. Smell the wonderful aromas of times in history when things were well. Hear the majestic voices of elated persons rejoicing around you. Feel the presence of something fulfilling. Taste the sweetness of never being without something delicious to satisfy you. What a wonderful place to be dwelling. Can you imagine yourself among the presence of others seeking the same peaceful place?
Relax. You have all the time in the world to be here. Time has stopped. Just be here in this moment and breathe. Inhale. Exhale. Focus on you and what has brought you to this place. Be yourself and let your inner child run without fear through the shadows for He is with you, right here by your side. Feel yourself getting lost in the presence of such greatness knowing there are no worries here. There are no fears to be seen or faced, only quiet inner peace. What a splendid view lies before us. Quiet steams. Beautiful flowers. Singing birds. Lazy clouds. Anything you could possibly imagine is here. Can you feel it? Isnít it awesome? I could stay here for eternity and with His grace someday I will.
Where are we you ask? Let me explain. You are residing in the place you and God have created. It is where you can go when things are not well with your soul. When you are doubting life and the very reason you exist you can come here and bask in the glory provided. Come here anytime, the door is always open. You will forever have an open invitation to join Him in this rendevous. How do you get here? Simple, close your eyes in prayer. Knock on the door before you and He will answer. He stands in the garden waiting for you to come to Him. He will take all your pains and worries. He will provide safe harbor for your weary soul. Call upon the angels of grace to guide you when you cannot see for yourself to come into His presence.
God has provided everything we could ever need to grow into the Christian He has designed us to be. There is nothing we are lacking if we only ask. God stands beside you in every situation whether you see Him or not. Come to this place of peace often. Renew your spirit. Rejuvenate your soul. Create a new you. Dance in this place of worship and know you are welcome here any time. Stepping into this realm of inner sanctuary is the most uplifting experience. When you re-energize yourself with the power from this place you will spread His glory to others. They will see a difference in you. Situations of distress will seem to be pebbles instead of mountains. Valleys will be easier to walk through and life will always seem like smooth sailing.
Come. Stay as long as you like.
Then go forth in peace.
Let the world see your smile.
