I can’t get peace from coffee
I can’t get peace from tea
I can’t get peace from oils
I can’t get peace from quiet.
I can’t get peace from whiskey.
I can’t get peace from a trip away with the hubby
I can’t create peace in my bathroom (no matter how many candles I light)
I can’t create peace in a coffee shop with a book.
I can’t create peace from being the world’s okayest of the world’s best mom.
I can’t create peace. Period.
All these things listed are awesome things. A trip with the hubby is awesome. Time away from the crazy at a coffee shop is great. Candles are beautiful as they flicker.
All these things can be ways God places a little quiet and a little rest in our lives but…these things are not the creator or giver of peace.
“But now in Christ Jesus you who were once far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace…. Ephesians 2:13-16
