peace is not the absence of war, that's just a truce. if you want true peace you have address the underlying issues that started the fighting in the first place.

- Ian Fergusson

that's right, i just linked myself.

i consider myself to be relatively peaceful. in truth though, i'm not very peaceful at all because i don't often find the courage and fortitude to do the heavy lifting involved in crafting peace in my relationships.

i live in truce.

i need peace.

peace requires a self awareness that is too often beyond me. sometimes i find the fortitude for finding peace but it's always sweat or tear provoking as well as rewarding.

God, let me find the strength to go beyond relationships of truce. let me dig deeper and address those issues that create growth in me so that i can in turn craft peace.

i want to be better. i want to be healed.

i want peace.

this totally made me nod with the sort of deep heart knowing of one who knows and says regularly your last few lines: I want to be better. I want to be healed. I want peace.

Praying you will know peace deeply in the days and weeks to come.
