Peace … It’s what most of us want. It has a connection with the gift of mercy. The experience of divine or human mercy means that I have been set free from one more area where I lack peace.
Knowing the gift of mercy in my life allows me to be at peace. I have no need to fear that God has abandoned me, or that God withholds mercy from me.
Peace. It may be expressed as world peace by some people, but most of us are referring to peace in our own lives. Peace in the face of my personal anxiety and worry (such as those things that I obsess about at three in the morning). Peace in the face of my insecurities and doubts (do they like me and appreciate my gifts?).
