We are studying the fruit of the Spirit in our women's Bible study. This week has been about peace. I think I mix up peace and feeling calm. Is it a lack of peace when the whining gets on my nerves and I completely snap at my daughter? Is it a lack of peace that causes me to be frustrated when Hubbie does not do something "my" way?
My image of peace is unruffled, not phased by the events happening around you. Jesus was always in control even when he was mad (in the temple courtyard). Is that peace, always being in control (or is that self-control, which we have not gotten to yet!)?
I guess I need to spend some more time in prayer about peace and how that should look in my heart and ultimately in my life.
