With everything that’s going on in our world the idea of living in peace might seem impossible. But what is impossible for man is possible with God.
2 Corinthians 13:11 says: “Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.”
Restoration. I don’t think I’ve noticed that particular word before. Restoration means bringing back to a former position or condition. Rebuilding, reconstructing, renewing or recovering. What would restoration look like in your life? Forgiving a betrayal so that a friendship can begin again? Studying every night for an hour instead of scrolling social media to raise your grades? Sitting down with a counsellor to discuss a hurt that is preventing you from moving forward?
Only you know the answer to that question but restoration is possible and the end result brings peace. Peace in your friendships, your future plans, your family and your heart. What step can you take toward restoration in your life today?
