ALL IS WELL WITH MY SOUL


Peace is much less a condition than a state of mind. Anxiety and tension can rule the day even when the circumstances of my life would indicate that all should be well with me.

I can walk in sunshine and see only the shadows. I can be surrounded by those I love and be consumed with fear of losing them. I can accomplish a great task and still wonder why I did not do better...

Peace, in the ultimate meaning of the word, is not the absence of conflict. It is not the accumulation of wealth, or comfort and ease, or a state of happiness. Peace is that sense down deep inside that says no matter what happens, all is well with my soul.
