Peace

Be selective in your battles . Oftentimes peace is better than being right. You simply don’t need to attend every argument you’re invited to. unknown

So then we pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another. Romans 14:19

peace

“Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Carefully consider what is right in the eyes of everybody. If if it is possible on your part, live at peace with everyone. Romans 12:17,18

love

Joy is love exalted; peace is love in repose; long-suffering is love enduring; gentleness is love in society; goodness is love in action; faith is love on the battlefield; meekness is love in school; and temperance is love in training.”      Dwight L. Moody

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.     I Corinthians 13:4-7

sorrow

Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.    Charles Spurgeon

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.          Philippians 4:6-7

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, leave the rest to God.Ronald Reagan

worry

Worry is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength–carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength. Corrie ten Boom

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
