The Peace that stays
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you, I do not give to you as the world gives, Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid . John 14:27
Finding peace in this hectic lives is difficult. After 8 hours of work we go home eat, sleep then wake up and go to work. This is the routine. Seems nothing can stop us with this way of life because we crave for Financial security, Job security, relations security and other securities to make peace with our self (to stop worrying for tomorrow). Sometimes we stop for a while and be in vacation, but after it, peace is not staying with us. That peace seems so elusive. Its elusive, temporary, intractable because we find peace in the wrong place, the physical world.
God is inviting us to find peace in Him, the true eternal peace. We must put trust(faith) in God. Even if the environment around us is chaotic and doesn't give comfort, we can still find peace with God within us. We may not please others and don't find peace with them but there is still peace within us. The peace that God offers is a peace that stays forever.
