Pieces of Peace
Everyone desires the word, and yet almost no one knows what the word means.
Instead, what we usually end up with is piece. A partial aspect of the solution we desire. One that temporarily satisfies and contains promises, but one that ultimately fails.
Such is the case in many areas of our lives. Including that of healing! We want and crave peace, but we do not achieve it. Instead, we have a piece of the world, and it is a very disappointing one at that.
If only we realized the true source of peace! If only we understood that (1) it is very achievable and (2) it is something much better than we dreamed of!
HINT: It is not found within yourself.
So often we find the problem within ourselves, and so we look to the solution within ourselves. This is incorrect and empty. Peace is found outside of ourselves. Peace has been gifted to us. Peace was bought with a price. Peace must be received in thankful and humble heart.
Peace is found in healing, and the Healer. We are the healed, the broken but redeemed, the ones who have a story to tell.
Go in peace, and be healed.
