What would peace look like in your home? Would it be a string of days without conflict?
Peace isn’t the absence of strife. Peace isn’t perfection. It’s not that simple. No… peace is having a calm heart in the midst of imperfection and conflict. It’s a miracle, really, because only God can supply your heart with clarity and patience… when you’re in the middle of a mess.
And you know what? That’s good news.
Life is messy. We can’t control our circumstances. So ask God to supply peace and patience. Ask for wisdom with your kids. You’ll be surprised how this kind of focus on God gives you an anchor for your soul.
He’ll give you everything you need… even when life is messy.
