Peace That Is Perfect

Dear God,

We live in a world full of chaos and turmoil.  There doesn't seem to be any peace either from small neighborhoods to even those in the other side of the world.  There is rampant fighting, wars, bombs, threats, and so much more.  How can we ever find peace, solace, and tranquility around us?  Reality bites -- no earthly army can protect us from harm.

But, my quiet time message today promises that when we trust in You fully, we will experience peace.  The kind of peace that transcends all kinds of understanding...  The peace that we all need amidst wars and rumors of wars...  Our reliance on You alone can only bring us unexplainable comfort and contentment. 

As I explained the real meaning of peace to my kids today, they understood that it is the very core of calmness deep inside us.  No matter what happens to tilt us on the surface, You are in our innermost being, bringing peace, harmony and comfort in our lives.  Thank You, Father, that we can always trust in You.

You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
Isaiah 26:3
