What is it about people who radiate peace? There is a strong sense of conviction about them, a compassionate respect for others, clarity of thought and communication, and a refreshing sense of humor.

What seems to be consistent with a peaceful aura is a strong belief system. it is a conviction that emanates from every breath that is taken, every thought that is experienced, every feeling that is felt, every action that is performed. This conviction is the grace of God.

The seeds of peace begin with a belief in God. The seeds grow as we become more rooted in our convictions as children of God. As we mature into hardy “perennials”, we experience the peace of our beings by living according to His will.

There is a simple prayer that directs us towards peace: “I AM LISTENING.” To keep our eyes and ears open to His word, His direction, His nudging, affords a sense of calm, even in the eye of a relational storm.

Listen.
