Peace Be with You


Let go and experience the Divine Presence.

(Listen to my song “I Will Give You Rest” by clicking HERE)


Matthew 11:28

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”


Sometimes the struggles and stresses of life are almost too much to bear.

When this is how it feels…stop.

Take a deep breath.

Know that you are held by a Great Compassion.

As Psalm 46 states: “Be still and know that I am God!”

Sometimes it takes being overwhelmed by life’s circumstances before we are finally forced to let go of trying to control everything and to surrender ourselves into the loving hands of God

Jesus gives us a gentle invitation to simply come to him and place ourselves in his care.

Try it. Feel the comforting peace that will enfold you and warm you.

It is then that you will be able to hear the gentle whisper of “I love you” in your heart.

Chaos and dismay do not win.

Even death is a doorway to new life.

Love will always have the final say.

You are in the process of transformation.

Be still…and find rest.
