Picture taken at Two Old Hippies
Did you catch that? It’s a play on space cadet, get it? Peace cadet…well, I thought it was funny.
Did you know that deep inside this type A personality is a hippie? Somewhere inside is a field of daisies, long flowing skirts and peace signs. I’ll admit however, the hippie in me has been buried for awhile under the cares of this world.
Over the last few months, the inner flower child has been resurrecting herself. I have discovered that above all things, I have to pursue peace. I mean, aggressively, without restraint, pursue peace. Hence the name of this website which stands as a daily reminder of my pursuit of peace in every situation.
How is that even possible? Well, it’s not easy. Focusing on the Word of God is a big deal in every situation but especially in this one. I have to constantly remind myself that I have peace, a supernatural peace inside of me. I have to make a conscious decision every single day to walk in the peace given to me.
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27
Yes, there is a time to fight. I’ve had to do that, in some cases, I’m still doing that. But, then there is a time when peace must prevail above all. The key is figuring out when to fight and when to sit in peace. Only God can tell you that in your circumstances.
No matter what situations come at you today, pray and seek peace.
