Today in feeling some anxiousness over a number of life situations, I took a very short road trip to a beautiful setting. I have visited this remote place before which I personally called “the church in the wildwood.” As a sat on the porch swing overlooking the clear-flowing brook cascading over the rugged rocks, I saw life abounding through God’s creation.
Sounds of singing birds, a gentle breeze, and aquatic life popping up from the water enhanced my tranquil visit. My concerns melted under the sunny skies, leafy-green, shade trees and gently-rushing, clear creek. Just the sound of that creek helped to lull me into a mode of trust and peace amidst multiple questions. In spending just about an hour in that haven of rest, His presence there brought me thanksgiving and meditation upon His Word.
One cannot put a price tag on peace. The Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, affords us that peace through a vibrant relationship with Him. In pursuing His peace, one can experience true solace especially in stormy times; no Jesus-no peace.
Isn’t it time to seek true peace that comes only through the One who promised it? (John 14:1, 27)
