I cannot believe it is already week 23 of 2019. Have you been following along with the journal prompts?
This week week we look at peace. What is it? When do you feel peace?
Jesus says He is giving up His peace (see John 14:27). Peace doesn’t mean there will be no difficulties or that we will always be happy. Peace is different than happiness. You can be in the midst of turmoil, yet have peace.
What does peace look like to you?
This week’s journal prompt begins with “I feel at peace when……” When you feel at peace?
While I was working on this journal prompt and wondering about my own peace I came across a phrase that really hit home. So many times I looked at peace to mean avoiding conflict. But as this phrase reminds me, that may bring peace to the situation, but it starts a war within myself. It takes away my peace.
I guess before I can describe feeling peace, I must first define it.
What does peace look like to you? Can you define it? When do you experience it? If you are willing, share your thoughts below.
