Peace never comes from what is around us. Peace can only be realized in contrast, like diamonds on black velvet. It has weight and warmth that steadies and anchors us from the inside. Peace is always in spite of and never because of.
Peace is the breath of the Holy Spirit, God in us. Peace exhales from our soul into our surroundings and settles the air.
Peace is the discipline of God into the atmosphere of the world that rails against Him.
Peace cannot be imparted from man to man and yet overflows the peaceful to drape itself over those he touches.
Peace descends, soothes, sings, whispers, speaks, commands, calms, rules, saves.
Today, I wish you peace.
Psalm 29:10-11 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever. The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.
