Finding peace is a lifelong journey. When you find yourself wondering how to find peace, look inward to discover new sources of calm and quiet. With practice, you will feel confident in your knowledge of how to get peace.
We are not discouraged. Even though our outer nature suffers decay, our inner self is renewed day after day.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console,
not so much to be understood as to understand,
not so much to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Let me give you one of the most beautiful statements ever uttered: “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.”
There is music in these words, spoken by Jesus in John 14. They fall upon the mind like light, with a benediction in their touch.
Peace I leave with you…let not your heart be troubled. Marvelous words which speak clearly their message of hope!
Here are powerful resources to help you feel the grace of God’s comfort and guidance.
