Where do you experience calm in your life?
I was diagnosed with ADHD in third grade. At the time I did not know what that meant, but I did know that I always needed to be doing something, and sitting still was not my forte. The only thing that captivated me was soccer. No matter if I was watching it on TV, or playing it, I was hooked. It could be the end of the world, but if I was playing soccer, I wouldn’t notice. Within the chaos of the game, I would be consumed with a sense of calm. Nothing in life makes me feel that way. The prophet Isaiah says, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; when through the rivers, they won’t sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you won’t be scorched and flame won’t burn you.” Our lives are busy, they are filled with so many things. How then do we find our clam in the madness? In everything that we do, especially those that make us feel overwhelmed, God is present. Through this season of Lent, open up to the peace of God in your life.
What brings you to a place, where you can feel calm?
