Day 20 - Finding Peace - 31 Days of Keeping Your Head Above Water
Peace. Something most everyone craves, but few experience regularly. When you have children, the peace is replaced with chaos ... the quiet is replaced with loud noise. It seems impossible to feel any peace.
I was lamenting this several years ago, when God showed me that peace isn't situational. Peace can be found even in the midst of chaos. Peace is a condition of our heart. True peace isn't dependent on peaceful surroundings, but comes through our reliance on God in the midst of the craziness. This is a hard one for me. I would prefer the peaceful surroundings! I am working on finding peace when the world around me is anything but.
Finding peace can help you keep your head above water.
