Seeking Peace- Follow the Correct Instructions

12 Apr

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis

Yesterday I discovered that the written instructions for my eye care, did not match the instructions I remembered the doctor giving me verbally. The written instructions told me to use twice the amount of drops! Since the drops would elevate my already fickle pressures I was alarmed and placed a call to the surgeon’s office.

A few years ago, I would have been confident that my memory was correct and not placed the call. This whole aging and memory issues are for the birds!

For our physical health, it is important that we follow the correct instructions with our medications and take them faithfully until the health event is cured or the doctor stops them.

How does this correlate with seeking peace in my heart, mind and soul?

For me, I need to spend time alone each morning, reading a devotional, scripture verses and pondering on their words. I need to follow the correct instructions from my healer.

But somedays, I feel too busy or even too complacent. I think to myself, “I’m good today, I will be fine.”

So, I skip a day and if that doesn’t result in a setback I am tempted to skip another, just as we do with medications. It doesn’t end well in either circumstance.

The surgeon’s office returned my call. My memory had been correct…this time.

Love: By spending time with the author of love, I am prepared by His love to face my day.

Joy: The result of being thankful.

Peace: When I am following correct instructions, by verifying them, I have peace.

Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face continually. Psalm 105:4.
