Whatever your problem, begin in the same way. Start with the realisation that God is present within and around you, and so enter into the realisation of the divine presence that it shall be a living reality to you, a life-giving power. Fill your soul with this great idea. … Settle into repose in quiet recognition of the divine presence. Dismiss all care, let all anxiety cease, drop your fears. Relax and permit yourself to rest. Never mind if there are duties to be performed. Prepare for them by becoming spiritually refreshed.
– Horatio Dresser, A Message to the Well, 1910
The LORD will give strength unto his people;
the LORD will bless his people with peace.
Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.
