The place of peace

Peace is not about accepting:
Peace is about embracing.

Peace is not the absence of trouble:
Peace is the active presence which shields us from and overcomes trouble.

Peace is not a way of thinking, or an emotion:
Peace can still both heart and soul.

Peace is not an ideal:
Peace is real.

Peace is not a concept:
Peace takes on flesh and blood in you and me.

Peace is not the end of a process:
Peace is a continuing way of life.

Peace is not what we hope for:
Peace is what we make if we choose to.

Peace is not something we move towards in order to attain it:
Peace comes close to us so we can receive it.

Peace is not FROM GOD:
Peace is the presence OF GOD.

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”
Isaiah 26:3
