Sovereign Lord, as you have promised,
you may now dismiss your servant in peace.
For my eyes have seen your salvation…
~Luke 2: 29-30
Life is meant to be lived from a Center,
a divine Center…
Life from the Center is a life of unhurried peace and power.
It is simple.
It is serene.
It is amazing.
It is triumphant.
It is radiant.
It takes no time, but it occupies all our time.
We need not get frantic.
He is at the helm.
And when our little day is done we lie down quietly in peace,
for all is well.
Simeon and Anna waited patiently in the temple for their glimpse of the Lord, and once granted that glimpse they were ready to lie down quietly in peace. They lived from the Center, and accepted that He is at the helm, no matter what, no matter when, no matter how. All is well.
