“A beautiful little blind girl was sitting on the lap of her father in a crowded compartment in a train. A friend seated nearby said to the father, “Let me give you a little rest,” and he reached over and took the little girl on his lap.
A few moments later the father said to her, “Do you know who is holding you?”
“No,” she replied with perfect contentment, “but you do.”
Absence of fear gives peace of mind. This little girl was at peace because she trusted her father. She knew he loved her because of the deep affection, care and respect he had shown her over the years.
When sorrow, tragedy, and heartbreaks occur in our lives, wouldn’t it be comforting if when the whisperings of God say, “Do you know why this has happened to you?” we could have the peace of mind to answer “No, but you do.” Peace must stem from an inward contentment built upon trust, faith, and goodwill toward God, fellowmen, and self. It must be constantly nurtured by the individual who is soundly anchored to the gospel of Jesus Christ
“Peace be unto you.” (Luke 24:36.)
“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
