Peace ...

A message to me, maybe for others as well..?

Dear Gorgeous Girl,

Peace is good. Peace is so so good. It is worth it to travel whatever lengths you need to go to feel peace. Often, peace is right in front of our face if we will just silence everything else out. Then sometimes we have to make really tough choices or go to great lengths to feel at peace. Whatever it takes, it is worth it. Always go where the peace is, especially the peace in your heart.

Peace is defined as in the dictionary as: freedom of the mind from annoyance, distraction, anxiety, etc.; tranquility; serenity. But peace is also defined as the normal, non-warring condition of a nation, group of nations, or the world (or within ourselves!).

Another definition of peace is silence; stillness.

Sometimes we are at war with our own selves, sometimes with an issue -- an addiction or an illness. Making peace with that part of ourselves is a huge step toward peace. Sometimes we just have to COME to peace with it. Some things are a lifetime struggle, a part of us that we just have to come to peace with -- and constantly seek peace inside of it -- and help that part of ourselves seek for peace.

When making tough decisions, you will never regret making the decision that brings the most peace to your heart. Sometimes it doesn't bring the most peace to your LIFE in the short term, but if it is what brings the most peace to your heart, that's the place to go. Always go where the peace is.

Seek peace, sweet girl.

You are loved.
xoxo

I feel peace when I listen to the song at the end of this link. Peace is as large as being a peacemaker- "A person who brings about or promotes peace" (Matt. 5: 9). Peace comes from doing good. CTR. Love it.
