Peace reminds me of an old friend. Every conversation included "where is my peace?" and "I just want some peace." I was reminded each time that there was no point in talking about faith or Scriptures because this person possessed a degree in those things. Looking at peace academically can make us blind. Wanting to acquire peace like something we could own can make us envious of what we think others might have that we do not.
We can come to believe that peace is outside of us.
