Today, I rest in a new place.
With one decision, I took trememdous pressure off myself this week and now I am resolved to rest in the PEACE of that move.
Dictionary says Peace is all of the following:
1: a state of tranquillity or quiet: as a: freedom from civil disturbance b: a state of security or order within a community provided for by law or custom
2: freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions
3: harmony in personal relations
I think definition two best describes where I sit today.
This new found Peace will allow me to resume my press forward in this tough life season I find myself passing through.
Notice - I did not say I was 'happy' or that things were 'good'. I think people sometimes mistake Peace for other things and that if they are "at Peace" it somehow means that life is without challenges or that happiness is tied to this state.
I assert today - that Peace in the midst of chaos is more powerful than anything. To be unencumbered by "disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions" when things are not peachy is amazing.
The source of my Peace is clear for me. It is my every growing faith in and relationship with my Maker.
I would love to hear of other sources for Authentic Peace. Drop me a note.
