In the world today many people talk about peace, peace of mind, and peaceful feelings. When I look at the world or the news, it is difficult to see the world as a peaceful place. The bible promises peace that surpasses all understanding. There have been times that I have experienced this kind of peace.
When I was sick and dying in 1995, one night I thought I was going to die. I prayed and said to Jesus that if he wanted to take me home to heaven it was okay, but more people needed to hear. I felt His presence come into my room and I was filled with a deep peace that I had not experienced before that time.
This past Spring on April 20th I was with my father when he died. I ha dbeen able to share with him about Jesus and prayed with him. He was spiritually ready. The morning he died I was with him reading from the bible to him. I felt at peace with where he was. I had so much peace that I taught my class that night and kept my normal schedule that week. It was not easy. I do not want to give the wrong impression, but I had peace in the time of need.
The world does need peace. We need peace in our hearts and souls. The peace we need is the peace that surpasses all understanding. That is the peace that Jesus will give to anyone who comes to Him.
