What does peace mean to you?
As I say in this video, for me, it means I can actually relax.
For a long time, that wasn’t possible for me. Years ago, I couldn’t sit at a kitchen table without shaking. Crazy, I know, but that was my experience. Peace means I can relax. I’m no longer tense when I talk to people. I don’t feel the need to drive fast, cut off other drivers, get out in front. It means I can enjoy life, enjoy my family, and the things that once made me blow up or sit up and stew until 3 am no longer bother me. They aren’t issues any more.
All of this is a gift, a gift from God. Because of His work in my life, peace is spreading through my soul. Sure, I’m a work in progress, but I’ve tasted what Jesus offers, and I like it.
What about you? What does peace mean to you?
PS. How do we break free of the “try harder” treadmill into the freedom that Jesus promised when He said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free?” What does that look like in the real world, and how do we get it? That’s our topic this week in Inner Wealth.
