The Peace of God

The peace of God is one of the most important truths I seek daily. For most of my life I have lived with mental or emotional problems that cause a great deal of inner turmoil. This is not only the opposite of peace; it creates unrest in me with how I tend to handle life in all its stress, pressure, and myriad conflicts.

I wish to be free to enjoy God, to live in the joy of knowing Him, and to handle challenges in a healthy way. How wonderful God’s graciousness is in Christ. His merciful love is pure in healing in the deepest parts of our being, empowering our weakness, and ever caring for us no matter how often we stumble.
