Living In Peace While In Pieces: A Memoir by Michael J Washington is honest, heartfelt and powerful. It is not written in a linear form but covers various topics throughout the author’s life that crossover.
The secret to peace is God. “My peace comes from my knowledge and trust in God.” Brought up to know God, the author’s times of peace were to be found resting in Him. We need to keep our eyes on God through all that life throws at us. Our peace comes from knowing who we are in Him. We cannot stop problems from happening but we can control our responses to them.
Our peace depends on our outlook, responses and choices. “Peace is yours to own, and nobody can take it from you unless you allow them.” Do not let others dictate your moods. Look to God.
