What I see defines who I am becoming, part IV

I recently came across some words of Henri Nouwen that captured something profound for me;

As long as we imagine and live as if there is no peace in sight, and that it all depends on us to make it come about, we are on the road to self destruction. But when we trust that the God of love has already given the peace that we are searching for, we will see this peace breaking through the broken soil of our human condition and we will be able to let it grow fast and even heal the economies and political maladies of our time.8
