Peace and quiet is one thing, but what we really long for is the peace of lack off stress, conflict and pain in our lives. That peace is longed for by everyone - and it's something that is in short supply. All of our efforts cannot guarantee peace for us. But it's available when we turn to the one and only true source of peace!
As Paul instructed the church in Philippi,
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.
