The Search For Peace


Peace. Webster's dictionary defines in as a state of tranquility and as having harmony in personal relationships. It is also defined as a time without war. Parents may define peace as the times when, oddly enough, all the children in the family are getting along. A married couple may describe it as the moments when there is agreement in the big things as well as the little ones, like what to watch on TV. No matter the definition you select for peace, it certainly is a time of freedom from discord, hostility, argument and clashing egos. It sounds wonderful but in reality true peace is rare.

It seems there is a force trying to make peace obsolete. Peace is the focus of rallies, songs, treaties, and entire social movements. Many set out to have peace and discover that it is difficult to find and even harder to keep. Peace can't be bought or sold. It isn't something you can hold on to, store away or multiply. For some, having peace would clearly be an absolute miracle!

Yes, true peace may be in short supply but still you can achieve it any time no matter where you are. Jesus Christ is Peace. When you know him, you know a peace that transcends all understanding. Take time to spend with him each day and you will find your life is more peaceful and blessed.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." John 14:27
