It’s a lovely word. Webster’s defines it as ” a state of tranquility or quiet.”
I think we would all like to live a peaceful life. But my life, on any given day, can be anything but tranquil or quiet!
The peace I need is the inner peace that comes from a deep and abiding faith. It’s the calm assurance that God loves me and has the very best for me, even in the dark days.
Patsy Clairmont said it well:
“A calmer faith. That’s the quiet place within us where we don’t get whiplash ever time life tosses us a curve. Where we relax (versus stew, sweat and swear) in the midst of an answerless season. Where we are not intimidated or persuaded by other people’s agendas but moved only by Him. Where we weap in repentance, sleep in peace, live in fullness, and sing of victory.” ~ Patsy Clairmont, Living Above Worry and Stress
“Great peace have they who love thy law and nothing can make them stumble.” Psalms 119:165
