Shalom

From The Heart of Abba Today:
Beloved,

Embracing Me,
Resting in My love,
In the midst of life,
Which includes:
What is,
What isn’t,
What may never be,
Is the path to shalom.

Shalom is not the absence of longings,
Unfulfilled heart longings,
Nor is it the absence of problems of life.

Shalom is resting in/on Me.

Choosing Joy and Trust and Hope,
Which are a way of “putting on Christ”,
From within the messes and messiness of life.

It is knowing you are not alone,
Even in the moments of crushing aloneness.

It is knowing you are safe and loved,
Not because of what you do,
But because of who I am,
And who you are in Me.
