PRAY: Making Peace

It is easier to keep the peace than to make peace. In the past month, that is the one phrase that has stuck with me out of all of the sermons that I've heard. Honestly, I don't remember much else from that particular sermon, but I have continued to return to that simple idea. I've thought about the relationships and situations in my life that make my heart and soul tighten up with bitterness or anxiety. I've thought about how I could stop just trying to survive through those unpleasant interactions and actually make peace with them. At first, I thought it would have to mean changing the relationships or people that make me feel unsettled. But, I don't think that God intends for us to change every single person with whom we cannot find peace. I think God intends to change our hearts. Making peace can mean talking it out or addressing difficult issues, but it can also mean changing our expectations and asking the Lord to fill us with His overpowering love.


  1. Very true, being at peace, means letting God change your heart, because you can't control others.
    Lovely blog! Can't wait to read more! :)

  2. Awesome post and I agree with you. I have come across people whom I wish acted in a different way, but I think He puts them in our path so we learn something about ourselves. With EVERY THING that happens in my life, I always reflect on why and what His purpose is for me...

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog! ❤
    Beautiful post!
