July 23 – Stop All Work Until —
Our Lord, grant us that wonderful inward Peace.
My children that Peace does truly pass all understanding. That Peace no man taketh from you. No man has the power to disturb that Peace, but you yourselves can let the world and its worries and distractions in.
You can give the entrance to fears and despondency. You can open the door to the robber who breaks in upon, and destroys, your peace.
Set yourselves this task to allow nothing to disturb your peace, your heart calm with Me. Stop all work, stop all intercourse with others — until this is restored. Do not let those about you spoil your peace of heart and mind. Do not let anyone without, any trouble, any irritation, any adversity, disturb it for one moment.
Look on each difficulty as training to enable you to acquire this peace. Every work, every interruption — set yourself to see that none of it touches the harmony of the real you, that is hid with Me in the Secret Place of the Father.
Great peace have they which love thy law:
and nothing shall offend them.
