Peace is not the absence of conflict. Peace is knowing God in the midst of conflict. While the earth remains, conflict remains. Peace is found in Christ, not in circumstances. Don’t waste your time looking for peace in a world which has none to give.

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. John 14:27
