I Am Saved | What brings you comfort?

How do you find comfort? How do you find peace and satisfaction?

There’s only so much you can do to control what your future brings.

5 or 6 years ago when my parents were in ill health, I started thinking, “I should go out for a walk and get some exercise, because one day, it would be a pleasure to be able to do that.”

One day I’ll miss the ability to be able to do that.

What brings one comfort? Spiritually – what brings you peace?

What’s important for me is peace and calmness.

What washes away one’s fears? What washes away the dark clouds?

Working to identify what works for you, and maybe meditate on that.

What can you do to find personal comfort?

Catching up with a friend, getting more exercise, reaching out to someone and patching up an old problem, or maybe just saying enough is enough and moving on.

It’s kind of scary to wake up and think about life as fleeting. People talk about it, but how many people really think about it beyond a quick saying?

What does it really mean, that life is short?

How do you make the most of that undetermined time?

Whatever works for you is good. There’s no litmus test.

For me, one of those things is writing songs, especially with Amanda Colleen Williams.

Here is “I Am Saved” words and music by Pete Garfinkel and Amanda Colleen Williams.
