Have you lost your peace?
If we start to feel anxious, we binge on distractions. We tune into Netflix. We chat up a friend. We busy ourselves with work.
Looking outside is easier then digging inside to uncover what God wants us to see.
So our peace goes unnoticed. Jesus isn’t consulted. And our anxiety, while it may hit pause for a minute, is still on.
Another reason we don’t find peace is we misunderstand it.
What is peace anyway? Is it the opposite of worry? Is it the absence of fighting? Is it total serenity with the world?
Isn’t peace something we’re supposed to “feel”?
