No one, and nothing can invade your inner space. Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing shatter your peace. Learn to maintain the peace you have. It’s as easy as breathing. If you can maintain your breath, you can maintain your peace. If God who gives life gives you breath, then He who gives peace will also grant you His peace. He will give you all good things that come from Him. But you must do one thing: Praying. Asking.
On this sixth day of Novena to the Holy Spirit for the Seven Gifts, we pray for the gift of understanding.
“Understanding, as a gift of the Holy Spirit, helps us grasp the meaning of the truths of our holy religion. By faith we know them, but by understanding we learn to appreciate and relish them. It enables us to penetrate the inner meaning of revealed truths and through them to be quickened to newness of life. Our faith ceases to be sterile and inactive, but inspires a mode of life that bears eloquent testimony to the faith that is in us; we begin to “walk worthy of God in all things pleasing, and increasing in the knowledge of God.(source: ewtn.com)”
Draw all things through prayer, experience the power of the Holy Spirit, and your life will never be the same. You will have more than peace. You will have understanding. You will have Eternal life here on earth. Some are already living it. So what’s stopping you from joining the eternally blissful spirits and dwell in the Lord’s happiness?
