Fighting for Peace

I’m a peace cadet.

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. Lawyers, lawsuits, police reports and more lawyers. I think at this point, I’ve got the fighting down to an art-an expensive art. The kind of art you don’t even want to hang up because it’s just so darn expensive. That’s about where my fight is at.

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.

At this point, I can’t actually do anything. I can pray the people I have put in charge of things are working things out for the best, I can pray for wisdom, discernment and safety as I manage through rough waters of faulty business deals and endless slander. But, maybe praying is enough? Maybe praying leads to peace? And, peace is what I need.

I need peace in my heart, peace for my family and today I’m telling you, there has to be one goal in all things and that is peace.

No matter what situations come at you today, pray and seek peace.

    Sarah I love your new website. I am so proud of what you have overcome with God’s strength. You are an amazing young woman. Now it’s time to rest in God’s peace and have fun with your new endeavors. I think this is what God has called you to do, you’ve just had a few detours along the way. My prayer is that God showers you with blessings. Love, you girl!!!!!
