I believe peace is a state of mind rather than a state of being.
I believe it is possible to find peace even in the midst of chaos, hardship, heartbreak, hurt and pain. Some situations can bring out the worst emotions, cause you to run in all the wrong directions, isolate you at a time when you need company the most and make you feel like its all for nothing. But peace above all things is what you need... Because peace is necessary to start the processes of reparation and healing.
That said, today...
I pray you find peace in whatever war, storm or earthquake you may be in;
Peace that replaces the despair that tries to overtake you at your most vulnerable,
Peace that calms the feelings of anxiety and confusion that overwhelm you,
Peace that helps you wipe the tears and tell yourself "It's all good, I'll be alright"
Peace that allows you to believe things will work out even if it doesn't look like it,
And peace that enables you to forgive life, to forgive others and to forgive yourself...
