It seems to me that I do not always recognize peace at a season when it is in abundance. Sometimes that very abundance makes my greed increase and so rather than appreciate the blessings, I cry out for more and more of what I truly already have inside me and flowing all around me.
Can it be that, for me anyway, and perhaps for others too . . . that it is times of strife and learning and trusting in Him then turning my back on it which opens my eyes to the grace He is pouring upon me so lavishly?
