Peace Sought

You who serve

the Prince of Peace


how are You




Do you run toward it


do you choose the opposite?


The Lord

would have you

SEEK peace


Which means

you diligently look for it


you hunger for it


and your first step in peace-seeking

is to quiet yourself


before the Prince

before the King


and the next

is to quiet yourself


before those

you don’t want to quiet yourself before



And the third thing to do

is to be alert and aware


of triggers in you

of the enemy’s tactics

of the ways people choose division


and choose peace


Pursue it

Seek it

Live it


Let it take root

in your heart


– Susie Stewart


…seek peace and pursue it.

– Psalm 34:14 (NIV)


If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

– Romans 12:18 (NIV)


Don’t hit back; discover beauty in everyone. If you’ve got it in you, get along with everybody. Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do. “I’ll do the judging,” says God. “I’ll take care of it.”

– Romans 12:17-19 (MSG)


Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling questions that arise]. To this peace indeed you were called as members in one body [of believers]. And be thankful [to God always].

– Colossians 3:15 (AMP)


Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.

– Hebrews 12:14 (NIV)
