An Invitation to Peaceful Living

(A repost from my archives updated for times like these!)

We are living in tumultuous times. Once again, this week's news has been filled with political controversy, pandemic updates and economic upheaval. I long for peace and quiet in the midst of this world's chaos. In Isaiah 32:18 we read that God's people can dwell in peace, safety and quiet. I'm longing for peace in the midst of the chaos, are you? Perhaps there are some things we can do invite more peace into our lives.

1) Ask the Prince of Peace to dwell in you and in your home and family.
Jesus is the Prince of Peace.  Invite Him into every area of your life, home and family.  Give Him permission to show you anything in you, your home and your family that is a peace robber.  There are many things that can steal your peace. 
 (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, May 24th, at Woman to Woman Ministries, where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)

still following,


  1. I'll visit over there to read the rest. Just want to say that as a pastor family I feel that anytime we move toward peace, the enemy tries to steal it. Sometimes I feel we're better off not moving toward peace. Just maintain the status quo. I know this is not true, but it's tempting to go down that road!

  2. I need to find that peace in my home. Things are in such turmoil. Thank you for this reminder to look towards Jesus.

    1. I pray that God's peace will fill you and your family and your home!

  3. One of my constant prayers these days for Peace to surround me and others. Happy Sunday
