Without finding true peace, there’s no lasting meaning to comfort or success or popularity.
We all strive, through the hustle and bustle of the world, to lead a good and happy life. We all tend to chase comfort, success and fame. But there’s something more valuable – something everyone wants, but very few actively set on a journey of finding true peace.
There’s a saying that goes; “Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”
The weekend may feel like a temporary escape, but as they say, “Monday always comes.”
Where do you attain real peace? What guides you in finding true peace? If a get-away to a serene place could give peace, why can’t we outrun our thoughts even while we are there? If meditation could bring peace, why are we troubled when we get back to our daily chores?
Jesus, in the Bible, says, “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.” He promised to give true peace, a permanent one, the one that lets you stay calm when life seems like a roller-coaster ride.
Jesus is the way that helps us in finding true peace. He bestows His peace freely to anyone who comes into a relationship with Him.
