The world is filled with peaks and valleys; trial and tribulation. It’s no wonder we feel worried and anxious as we face a variety of daily struggles–relationship struggles, financial problems, unexpected news, grief, etc. The great news is the Bible tells us that Jesus came to give us peace! Not the world’s kind of peace that comes and go’s, but a deep spiritual and lasting peace that transcends our (limited) understanding. If we seek God and His plan for our lives, we will experience the kind of peace He has promised us.
