Peace, God’s peace, isn’t necessarily an absence of trouble or turmoil. It is a calm assurance that, even though we may be surrounded by chaos, all is well.
Because God is God.
Let yourself meditate on these scriptures, over and over; allow the Spirit of Peace an opportunity to cleanse your soul from the poisonous cares of the world.
