One of the most peaceful things in life that brings calm to anyone’s mind, family and home is to watch a baby sleeping. The child completely surrenders to the fatigue, and trusting the parents and environment to be safe is not an issue. It does not matter what is happening in the world, the child rests and all is well in that moment. Is it any wonder that Jesus said we should become like little children (Mt. 18:3)? When we are confident in the Lord’s presence and have learnt to trust in His power to protect us in the many experiences of our lives, that is when we truly come to a state of rest (Mt. 11:28). The peace of Christ is stronger than the stress of life. Rest well. Lord Jesus, we believe in Your saving power. May Your abiding presence give us the peace and confidence we need to find rest amidst the storms of life. Amen.

Blessings,

Fr. Howie
