Peace is an odd thing. What brings peace to one person brings pain to another. Peace doesn’t mean problems are solved, but it provides strength that becomes a foundation under any problem. It’s what stirs us to action and gives us the wisdom to take a step back. It invites patience and perseverance. It humbles us.
Peace is not a feeling; it is a process. It becomes a residency. It involves a series of choices that feel deeply personal but actually set self aside. Peace is a yielding to truth, and it will always change us.
Peace is an odd mystery that we might never unravel and completely explain, but I will still continue to seek and invite it to permeate my life.
