PEACE


Peace. It's desired and prayed for but for many impossible to attain.  Peace is defined as a freedom from disturbance, war or violence. Further it is noted to be tranquility and quiet. Quiet and stillness are often difficult to attain let alone peace. Still, we all long to have this state of being for ourselves and those we care about. 

Peace starts with you. Your thoughts, actions and word either align with peace or are counter to it. The way you interact with others, including those closest to you, reveals the degree of peace in your life. Yes, it can be difficult to find peace or quiet even in your own home, still it's important to strive for peace every day.

The Bible has much to say about peace. Read these scripture and keep them close at hand to encourage you as you seek and pray for peace:

 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness. James 3:18

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.. Galatians 5:22

Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Romans 12:18 

Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.  
Psalm 119:165

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

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

Peace be with you!
