I wish I had wings like a dove, so I could fly far away and be at peace. Psalm 55.6

There are times when we want to fly away. “Get me out of here!” We need that sometimes, the chance to recharge the batteries; to cool off; to have some R&R. The Good News, Jesus understand this, after all he took time out to pray and be restored, and if He needed to do this, then so do we.

No such prayer today – a challenge instead. Find a quiet place, and have a few minutes thinking of the word ‘peace’. What ‘mind pictures’ does that word create? Treasure them, and thank God for the gift.
