Blog Blast for Peace 2013
What exactly makes for peace and why should we pursue it. It's such a simple word. Peace is not simply the absence of conflict, whether it be personal or international. Peace is not simply tolerance of others, regardless of their beliefs, behavior, or attitudes. In order to have peace on a grand scale, it is necessary to have peace on a personal level. Peace cannot be found in wealth. It cannot be found in power. It cannot be found in pleasure. Our world is filled with miserable people who have tried to find peace in all of these things. True peace comes from our Creator. However, we must seek it out. Again, the world is filled with miserable people who thought that merely labeling themselves as Christians would bring peace into their lives. We are not promised wealth. We are not promised power. We are not promised a life filled with pleasure. We are promised that the God who created us and sent His Son to die on a cross for our sins, will give us peace in the midst of our surroundings. Regardless of our position in life and the circumstances we find ourselves in, if we can look to God Almighty and truly say, "It Is Well With My Soul", then we have found peace. May you and yours find peace. Enjoy.
