PEACE - the enormous difficulty!
Two sages reflected upon peace long ago:
"Resign every forbidden joy; restrain every wish that is not referred to God’s will; banish all eager desires, all anxiety; desire only the will of God; seek him alone and supremely, and you will find peace." ~ Francois Fenelon (1651-1715)
"The foundation of the Christian’s peace is everlasting; it is what no time, no change can destroy. It will remain when the body dies; it will remain when the mountains depart and the hills shall be removed, and when the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll. The fountain of His comfort shall never be diminished, and the stream shall never be dried. His comfort and joy is a living spring in the soul, a well of water springing up to everlasting life." ~ Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758)
Understanding all I own in heaven re-sets me from being distracted and disturbed by owning all I want on earth.
And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
