Describing peace as “found” is apt. It is a place always available, a state born of knowing my place in this existence, and trusting an invested God. Chaos and confusion are distractions. When we mindfully and patiently observe circumstances and events with an eye toward the people involved, and with confidence that love is triumphant, we realize that what seems like disorder is actually the manifestation of a pattern so intricate that we can’t discern its design. Peace comes as confidence in spite of chaos.

I am
by design, intentionally
of the essential element constructing creation
as we all are
in spite of fear and selfishness—
mine and yours

And so I ask you:
In the midst of chaos, how do you find peace?
