Reading Walter Riggan's commentary to the book of Numbers, this definition of shalom was written:
"...the peace which alone reconciles and strengthens,
which calms us and clears our sight,
which frees us from restlessness
and from the bondage of unsatisfied desires,
which imparts the consciousness of attainment,
the consciousness of permanence
in the midst of the transitoriness of oursel'es and of outward things."
~Montefiore, Jewish scholar.
This is the peace we are promised by our Lord, the peace from Him which the world cannot take away.
That's the word for This Day.
It is enough.
It is more than enough.
Lord, grant this peace this day.
Blaze it through each moment,
that in my life any semblance of this peace can be clearly seen as being from you alone.
