He has promised to meet all our needs according to His glorious riches. Our deepest, most constant need is for His Peace. He has planted Peace in the garden of our hearts, where He lives; but there are weeds growing there too: pride, worry, selfishness, unbelief. He is the Gardener , and He is working to rid our hearts of those weeds. He does His work in various ways. When we sit quietly with Him, He shine the Light of His Presence directly into our hearts. In this heavenly light, peace grows abundantly and weeds shrivel up. He also send trials into our lives. When we trust Him in the midst of trouble, Peace flourishes and weeds die away. Thank Him for troublesome situations; the Peace they can produce far outweighs the trials we endure. (Blessed By A Child)

1 Hear, O LORD, and answer me,
for I am poor and needy.
2 Guard my life, for I am devoted to you.
– Psalm 86
