April 7 - Peace

Philippians: And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

This is sometimes a hard one to understand. Peace is what we must carry in our hearts always; in traffic, on zoom calls, with a difficult customer, when we are under attack.

Peace is what Christ offered his apostles whenever he reappeared to them after the Resurrection. It is his gift to us, for us to guard, protect, and live in. If there is peace in our hearts, we have no room for anger, worry, envy, or fear; only love, forgiveness, acceptance, and courage.

If we have peace in our hearts, we live in peace, in harmony with all living beings, humans, and beyond. If we live in peace, in love, we see the world differently. It is more alive. Especially this time of year, plants are greener and more vibrant; people are kinder and lighter.

It is our job to guard God's peace in our hearts first. As we each begin to hold that peace dear to us, peace will grow, one heart at a time. When we pray, we need to pray for peace in our own hearts first; only then can peace transform our world.

"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me."
