Day 25: A Second Of Peace


The boat comes by

bringing with it its aftermath.

Its WAKE~

Its trigger.

Its backwash.

Its turbulence.

You come by,

bringing with you your aftermath.

Your WAKE.

Do you trigger a turbulent backwash of anxiety

or a trigger of PEACE?

What is your backwash?

Think about it.

If you were to walk in a room

would people be so overwhelmed by you or overwhelmed by you.

As I am not quiet.

As when I enter a room I can just picture those who are the quiet silent type

feeling my trigger of energy and wanting to run the other way.

Oh I even overwhelm myself.

Now when my hubby enters a room I know that many who are

the quiet silent type or the energy bunny type

can feel his quiet trigger of PEACEFULNESS.

So do I become the quiet silent type?

Now we know GOD performs miracles,

 but I don't even think HE can make me quiet.

But then again HE does.

This passion inside of me is always brewing,

and that can be a good thing,

but a not so good thing

unless GOD gets a hold of me

and when I get a hold of HIM.

I even surprise myself how quiet & silent I can be,

so that I may even leave a

WAKE of

PEACEFULNESS

LOVE,

 JOY,

 PEACE,

PATIENCE,

 KINDNESS,

GOODNESS,

FAITHFULNESS,

GENTLENESS,

& SELF-CONTROL

 (Galatians 5:22-23).

And when that happens

you

 know that

IT'S NOT ABOUT ME,

because no matter how hard I try to leave

an unturbulent trigger of the backwash of quiet silence,

you know I have to remove my whole self from the picture.

For that is when you

 SEE JESUS,

because only JESUS can leave behind a wake of

PEACEFULNESS

that transcends all understanding.

And there is no other place I would ever want to be.

Oh the silence of PEACEFULNESS.

Can't you hear it?

Do you want it?

TICK. TICK. TICK.

"PEACE BE STILL"

(listen to the song below)
