From The Commonplace Book

Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart. - Unknown, quoted by Sarah Susanka
Yes, this is true. Some people seem to have the ability to have peace in the midst of any thing. Others of us spend much time searching and desiring such inner strength. Want to know where I think the real thing comes from?

Well, I'm telling you anyway (it's my blog so I get to do that sort of thing):
Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble. Psalm 119:165 ESV
Some folks seem to be just naturally placid. And there may be some measure of peace in simply acknowledging God's existence. There is almost definitely some peace in claiming to love Him. Despite those types of peace, we're told that real peace is for those who love His law.

I crave that kind of peace - the kind where nothing can make me stumble. What must I remind myself, when things don't seem peaceful? Love His law.
