The True Definition of Peace

April 25, 2011

A painting contest was once held and the artists were given the assignment of creating a work that defined peace.

Many beautiful submissions captured golden sunsets or serene landscapes. But the entry that won was a picture of a coastline during a terrible storm. Dark, ominous clouds and tall, angry waves filled the frame. But in the corner, a mother bird was nestled in a tiny crevice in the rocks, with her wings gently covering her young.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. – Psalm 91:4

“Peace is not the absence of storms, but the presence of God during them.”
