My readers and fans often ask me about my choice of titles for my books, in particular In Defense of Stillness. Stillness is the space between you and the world. It is the quiet place, the secret place where God abides in you. It is so essential that this sacred space is defended from the cares of this world.
I compiled In Defense of Stillness with that in mind. I was concerned about the overall "frenzy" of organizations asking, no begging for money on social media, television and the streets. People were struggling to do goodwill and good works throughout the earth, and it didn't make sense to me.
I hoped that by having possession of this compilation that they could take hold of true abundance: utter trust in God to direct their paths even when life doesn't make perfect sense. Having inner peace about this financial truth is something that cannot be valued in currency. That peace is stillness and having the knowledge of those financial scriptures can give you the peace of mind that you need to not panic in crises.
I do not claim to have all of the answers: but I believe that my faith does answer some dark and difficult questions. I do believe that the Holy Bible can be used as a code for financial peace.
That definition of financial peace can mean different things to different people. I do not propose to put God in a small box: our human brains can only know in part because his ways are not our ways and his thoughts are not our thoughts. I imagine that one day when we meet our Maker that it will all make sense.
In the meantime, my focus is on the wealth that I already possess and utilizing those resources to do goodwill throughout the earth. In turn, I believe God will and continues to bless those acts of good fortune and well-being.
Today, as you live and bask in his goodness, cherish each moment and encourage yourself in the Lord. Embrace gratitude and count your blessings on this day.
