Pursue: 1 Peter: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: 1 Peter 3:10-12: "For the Scriptures tell us: Whoever wants to embrace true life and find beauty in each day must stop speaking evil, hurtful words and never deceive in what they say. Always turn from what is wrong and cultivate what is good; eagerly pursue peace in every relationship, making it your prize. For the eyes of the Lord Yahweh rest upon the godly, and His heart responds to their prayers. But He turns His back on those who practice evil." 


His heart responds to our prayers as soon as we seek His guidance, but too often the words that are shot against us from ourselves, or others, cause us to accept failure first.


We immediately become self-centered and accept the harsh words. Unless.

Pause--listen--seek--truth--pray--pursue peace first.

To recognize each other from heart to heart and take the time to become neutral when needed. To seek His light first. To understand we can choose His beauty through His presence.

Lord, please keep our eyes and thoughts and actions set in Your words and Your voice. To become better listeners. And trust wherever You lead us.

Your thoughts,
