Do we know what most often steals our peace and figuratively puts us in the dark?

Finding the source of darkness is then the task. 

But what so often happens is that instead of finding the source…we fixate on the symptoms.  We spend all of this time and energy putting band aids on something that will never heal until the source is treated.

We usually think of the source of our problems to be something out of our control, but

“What if the source is within me?” 

Maybe that’s why it’s so difficult to figure out.  We spend so much time looking outside of ourselves for our issues…and we run through the who, what, when, where and why’s trying to understand the outside forces pressing in on us. 

But for those of us who follow Jesus, we are tasked to look for the source within, for it is from within where our strength comes.  We turn to Jesus, ask him to take control and work out or resolve what we cannot.  We just need reminders of that from time to time.

Peace
