How do we find peace?

I’ll make a covenant of peace with them that will hold everything together, an everlasting covenant. Ezekiel 37:26

I feel most peaceful in my home–specifically in the sanctuary of my screened-in patio. Here, I sit most months of the year and watch the birds, bunnies, and lizards in my yard, read meditationimages, and then write my own reflections in Daily Meditation Moment. Now that I am retired, I can choose to sit here all morning, and sometimes I do. But, the moment I re-enter “Realityland,” I am aware the world is not at peace.

What will it take to make peace prevalent in the world? No more war … no more abuse … no more prejudice? Unfortunately, there is no immediate resolution to the woes of the world. However, in the 37th chapter of Ezekiel, God brought peace to Zion and restored the livelihood for all to live in peace.  Through Ezekiel, God promised, “I’ll make them secure … I’ll live right there with them. I’ll be their God!” (vs. 26, 27)

As we celebrate Memorial Day, and remember the men and women who went to battle for people all over the world, we also give thanks for the promise God made in the book of Ezekiel. God’s peace begins in the heart, and in the sanctuary of your home (or patio).

Dear Lord, thank you for providing a way to peace, through Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.
