Peace

Peace
By Krissy Hanna

“For he himself is our peace…” Ephesians 2:14

Jesus is our peace.

I often find peace…

  • in financial security.
  • near the quiet stream. 
  • in the middle of a song lyric.
  • under a canopy of aspens.
  • when everyone in the family is acting kind.
  • when I get what I want.
  • while accomplishing things.
  • when my house is clean.
  • in relationships devoid of drama.
  • When everyone is following the rules.

But there is still peace… 

  • when my finances are a mess.
  • when a bulldozer wrecks the area around the stream.
  • while someone plays the wrong chord.
  • as the trees are being chopped down.
  • when there is chaos in my family.
  • when I don’t get what I want.
  • even if I don’t get things done.
  • when my house is a full-on mess.
  • when relationships fall apart.
  • when no one is following the rules, including me. 
  • if in the midst of it all,  I remember

He himself is our peace.
