The Beatitudes...So much I could journal from these incredible words of Jesus. But "Blessed are the Peacemakers" is what I felt led to do. 

Oh Lord....I want to be a peacemaker. I feel so ashamed of being a troublemaker in the past. I despise that part of me. I know that I have hurt others before with my words or attitude & peace was the last thing that I was bringing forth. Help me to allow Your peace to shine through me even in the most tense of situations. I know that my human nature is to want to rise up, be defensive & have the last word. But Your peace should be the last word. It should be what reigns supreme in my heart, mind, soul & my actions/words in everything that I do. Thank you for loving me through my failures, stupidity & nonsense.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:3-12
