Every day I see or hear reports by the news media of crises of world over. I may listen to everything that is wrong in the lives of my friends, neighbors, and associates and feel overwhelmed.
So I make sure that I build several serenity breaks into my day. In these times of quiet reflection, I review the truth that is above and beyond current situations and circumstances. I think about God's presence, power, and activity in me, in the people I know, and in people everywhere.
My serenity breaks not only put me in touch with spiritual truths for all people, but also renew my own faith, strength, and wisdom. I act creatively in cooperation with the divine plan for all, and I renew this commitment each day wherever I am and in all that I do.
"In every place your faith in God has become known."
- 1 Thessalonians 1:8
