CQOD: 05/21/06 -- Grou: the peace God gives
Christian Quotation of the DayMay 21, 2006
Feast of Commemoration of Helena, Protector of the Faith, 330
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
-- Romans 8:5-6 (ESV)
But how shall we rest in God? By giving ourselves wholly to Him. If you give yourself by halves, you cannot find full rest—there will ever be a lurking disquiet in that half which is withheld... All peace and happiness in this world depend upon unreserved self-oblation to God. If this be hearty and entire, the result will be an unfailing, ever-increasing happiness, which nothing can disturb. There is no real happiness in this life save that which is the result of a peaceful heart.
... Jean N. Grou (1731-1803), The Hidden Life of the Soul
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, I seek Your peace for my heart.
