The sun is gone, and the moon is about to come out. The blinds are down, and pretty soon, I will need to turn on the lights. It’s the end of my workday, and I have already taken a shower and had dinner. Now I sit here with my soft white blanket and meditating on what peace means to me.
Six years ago, I didn’t understand peace. I had never experienced it. I was always at war with myself. Did you know that according to Google, peace means: a state or period in which there is no war or a war has ended? The constant battle within myself ended six years ago when I made Jesus my Lord and Savior.
Before accepting God into my heart, I lived in Hollywood, had a tv show, a boyfriend who wanted to marry me, and who took care of me financially. Even after having all of that, I never once experienced peace. If anything, there was always chaos within me. What I thought I always wanted didn’t bring me peace. If anything, there was always chaos within me. What I thought I always wanted didn’t bring me peace. If anything, it left me feeling empty. When I surrendered to Jesus and accepted him as my Lord and Savior, I started to live in peace and experience it. Life is wonderful because Jesus lives in my heart.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
