Peace is like a newborn that is sleeping, a sunrise breaking through the night, a rest that settles after a bout with strife.  Peace. It is knowing that a promise spoken will be kept by the promising one. It is rest, trust, believing that you are loved, knowing that the one who loves you is faithful. 

Peace cannot be bought or sold, only given, made, and maintained. 

Matthew 5:9~
"Blessed....enjoying enviable happiness, spiritually prosperous [that is, with life-joy and satisfaction in God's favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions] are the makers and maintainers of peace, for they shall be called the sons of God!"

Making peace when there is strife. Helping to settle the air instead of stirring the pot. Bringing hope instead of despair. It is they who make peace. They willingly and conscientiously make an effort to help in the matter at hand. To bring life to it, help to it, settle it. 

Sometimes it is leading them to Jesus. 

Ephesians 2:14~ "For He Himself is our peace....."

Sometimes it is reconciling the hurting. 

Sometimes it is silencing the accusing.

Sometimes it is reminding of promises.

Mending the broken.

Lifting the needy.

Surrendering a will.

Believing and walking in faith.......... be continued.....

Love ya,
