God is at the center

God is at the center of every person’s life.  He is in our heart whether we accept Him or not.  He never separates Himself from us because He is the Giver of life Who gives life to every created being.  We have buried Him with our worries and worldly cares which destroy the peace within us, and that is why we have no peace or rest. No one on earth can give us unshakable inner peace.  Money cannot give us peace, neither can fame, honor, a high-ranking position, nor even our closest friends and family.  The only Giver of peace and life is the Lord.  He gives peace, stillness, and joy to the angels and the saints, to us and to every created thing.  Therefore, we must repent and turn to the Lord.
