Peace is “freedom from disturbance” and “tranquility”. Cultivating an atmosphere of peace is necessary for your well being. Choosing to walk away from drama and those who cause disturbances in your life is directly correlated to your happiness.
Early on in marriage, my husband told me he enjoyed coming home and being in our home. I’ve worked hard over the years to make sure our home stays that way. Cultivating peace is a deliberate decision. Clearly, disturbances will come and try to intrude but you can remove them.
Take a moment and think of disturbances and distractions that rob your peace. What can you do to get rid them?
Stay focused on maintaining a peaceful atmosphere wherever you go. Romans 12:8 says, “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.”
