My Thoughts on Peace

It’s not how much we know about God’s word and all things good, noble, right and worthy that comprise peace and love but what we do with what we know. We all have the responsibility to act in a manner that is worthy with the knowledge that we have. Regardless of what difficult thing is going on in our lives, we must fight against the darkness and rise above and choose better not bitter. So with intent focus, let us all run a good race living and loving well, creating peace, living in harmony, making love, not war, being kind and tender-hearted toward each other, and helping a fellow man in need. Lest we forget that everyone, yes everyone, struggles from time to time. Everyone experiences storms and difficult seasons. We must remain strong and patient in our afflictions claiming victory over our difficulties. Relief, peace, comfort and solace always follow the storms of life. So let us be wise, not foolish. Let us be gentle not harsh. Let us be kind not cruel. And let us be sensitive to the needs of one another. Let's choose love. Let's choose peace.  

Yours faithfully,
