January 24–The Peace Possibility

Often times we wait for the other person to make the first move in restoring a relationship. After all, they owe us an apology, or they are the ones who need to change first, and certainly more than we do, in order to improve our relationship with them.

Oh! We sooooo need to get over ourselves and recognize the responsibility we have to live at peace with others. I know that peace with certain others will not always be possible; we have no power to change someone else. However, we can certainly yield our stubborn pride to our Lord, and ask God to show us what we can, and should do, to live at peace with others. 

The possibility for peace is at work only when we first take up our own responsibility to be peace-makers, not peace-breakers . In each relationship. In all circumstances.

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Romans 12:18

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
