Attaining inner peace

Love little things and strive for that which is modest and simple.  When the soul is mature, God will give it inner peace.  The Lord watches over us and He is pleased that you long for His peace.  Until the soul is ready, He will only sometimes allow us to see that He is present everywhere and fills all things.  At these moments the soul feels such joy!  It feels as though it has everything!  But then the Lord conceals Himself from us again, in order that we might long for Him and seek Him with our hearts!
