A peace-filled life

I have a desire to be at peace now, more than ever.  It can be so easy to act like the world and practice things that take away my peace.  Today I recognize that the way to peace is not hard if I choose it.

Here are some of the things that take away my peace:

fear
self-will
shame
condemnation
dishonesty
anger
regret
manipulation
pride
judgement
willfullness
resentment
unrealistic expectations

Here are some of the things that bring me peace:

honesty
love
prayer
acceptance
surrender
kindness
happiness
hope
God’s word
forgiveness
thanksgiving

I choose peace.

Father, Thank you for giving me a desire to live a more peace-filled life.  When I choose to practice the things that give me peace, I become more like you and less like the world.   In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
