In the busyness of our every day lives, its easy to be consumed with our jobs, our families, our friends and our hobbies and forget to peacefully centre ourselves. In a world full of war, hate and turmoil, its hard to find a place of peace in our souls.
"World Peace" is that term that every body wants, the phrase every beauty queen states is her utmost goal, and something nobody really believes in.
Where is that place of tranquility, where you can step back from the world, from its horrors and terrors, from its nagging for your constant attention, and be still? It doesn't need to be a place of beauty & serenity, but it does need to be a place where you can quiet your mind.
It is said: "There is no peace,' says the Lord, 'for the wicked." Isaiah 48:22
In this world full of so much wicked, where is the hope for our peace. Our hope can only rest in God. "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27
My prayer for you today is that you have a place where you can be still, and allow the peace that comes from God give you rest and hope.
