Finding Peace In The Midst Of Pain

Is it possible to find peace in the midst of pain? Due to my daily scripture reading {“Seek peace, and pursue it.” ~Proverbs 34:14} I was inspired to write a post on this particular subject. Recently, one of my family members was assaulted by more than one person.

It is not until, you go through something like this, that you understand the pain that is felt.

I had many different emotions going on at one time. There was a part of me that wanted revenge, and the other part of me wanted to know, what made these young people do something so bad to someone who was minding their own business.

As a mother, I felt the pain of my child, my pain, as well as the pain of their parents. As far as I know, they could have had parents that did all of the right things, but the children still made bad choices.

I have found my peace in the midst of the storm. I have decided that this is not my battle, it is the Lord’s. And that God will take care of the situation. He always has and always will.

Today, I found peace in this situation and pray that the young people will give their life to the Lord. The Bible says to pursue peace, I will do that by constantly praying for them that they will turn their lives around and make a difference in the world we live.

If God forgave me, who am I not to forgive them. We hold up our blessings when we refuse to seek peace towards those who hurt us.

Who do you need to forgive today so that you can find peace?
