"Peace Beyond Understanding"

"Peace Beyond Understanding"

There was a time when I was with a dear friend and somethings were said that hurt me. I didn’t even know if they were aware. It did not seem so. After they left the hurt sank deeper into my heart and I began to pray. I wanted to say something to them, but wasn’t sure how or if it would be the right thing to do. I prayed and asked specifically, ‘If it is right to say something, please can You provide an opportunity that I can see, to do it and please give me the words’. I knew I would see that dear friend later that day. I prayed again before being with them for strength and guidance. Later when I came to the place where I knew I would see them, I said a prayer again in my car. I was hurting but didn’t want to say anything if it would make matters worst. I went into the building and as they saw me they approached immediately. They said, “I think I owe you an apology”. Wow…. I was stunned. That was a ‘golden opportunity’. I was able to share my earnest feelings in such an easy and sincere way. It was well received and I felt a ‘peace beyond understanding’. After talking to them, I found a quiet place and quickly knelt down and gave thanks for what I felt was a miracle of the tenderest kind.
