God leads us into places of peace. When we left home, I set out with the intention of going to one place, but found myself changing my mind, and going to another place. The changes was in part made when we saw how full the parking lot was, and we did want to maintain “Social Distancing.” We ended up in a peaceful but somewhat uncomfortable situation.
Instead of taking a walk in the warmth of the woods, here we were facing the icy Lake Ontario waters. Though it is now spring, I was seeing the harshness of the remnants of winter. The lake was very rough and the blast of the wind ferociously cold to especially my finger tips.
It was beautiful to still see the icicles on the trees and to feel the freshness of the wind on my face. There was no one else around and there hardly ever is in these particular areas of beauty on such a day, so it was easy to practice “Social Distancing.”
We enjoyed the moment of peace walking on dry land between the lake and the marsh, but our little oasis we are now enjoying, and have been for the past year, seems to be quickly disappearing. The lake waters have gone way past the retaining wall and the marsh waters are overflowing, and they are coming together so that this dry area where we stand may disappear.
So I stood and enjoyed the peaceful but somewhat uncomfortable moment, in that particular place. Perhaps God is trying to show me that in the most uncomfortable of situations, there is still Peace to be found.
At this time as we around the globe experience this crisis, I pray that we will all look to God and find our “Peace” in Him. Remember to P U S H Pray until something happens.
Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. Mark 4:39 (GNT)

I’m glad you were able to get out and get some fresh air. I think God puts us in an uncomfortable place sometimes just so we’ll bring our focus back to him.
Yes, it’s always good to be out in the fresh air. I do believe that God allows uncomfortable situations in our lives so that we may grow and yes, you’re so right, to bring us into a relationship with Him. I so hope that as we are in this health crisis, that many of us will see our need for God in our lives, and establish a lasting relationship with Him. Have a blessed day and thanks for reading and commenting. 🙏🏾🙏🏾
Amen 2Timothy 1:7 also brings me confort
Leola, I was pleased to find this post as you shared an isolated walk near the lake. Your words and pictures made the time special. More importantly, I appreciate you sharing the acronym P U S H. God’s peace! He will bring us peace when we need it most.
