finding and choosing peace

April 16, 2010

There are many different reasons we might loose (or misplace) our sense of peace. This past week I’ve been reminded of this through listening…

…to others-

who have lost a child.

who don’t know who is a friend.

who have misplaced their vision for life after college.

who have lost their battle with severe depression and anxiety.

…to myself-

who is feeling hammered on from many directions at the end of this semester.

 This afternoon I am choosing to see the sources of peace in my life:

Nature.

Family.

Quiet Solitude.

I pray that we can all find our own sources of peace and choose to rest and take root in that peace. I also pray that we can serve as sources of peace for each other. And remember Jesus’ words:

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27)
