I think that most of us have times in our lives that are stressful and full of chaos. It is so easy to get lost in the noise and the confusion of life. I think that, when we want to have peace in our lives, we need to do our part as well. I don’t believe that peace is passively waiting for something to happen. Rather, it is a choice that we make each and every day.
In these hectic and difficult times, the Savior’s promise of peace finds a special place in my heart. That deep abiding sense of peace that is not found within the world around me, but is found in and through faith in my Savior Jesus Christ. It is only when I turn to Him that the winds and waves are calmed and I can endure.
His peace is so much more than just a quiet place. His peace has the power to heal a mother’s heart, the power to change what needs to be changed, and the power to go on, content to know that, although life here may be full of trials, we will yet know peace.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
