The peace that transcends understanding

There are days in our lives when we find ourselves burdened, confused, overwhelmed, and distraught. While we go about our daily duties, we just can't help but wish that the day would end, in earnest hope that by tomorrow, our problems and worries would have vanished, too. Today was certainly one of them. But, like a son calls on to his father, so must we run to God, who alone is the ultimate source of comfort and strength. Perhaps we are being chastened, maybe we are being humbled, or maybe, we are being taught a lesson of great importance. Whatever the reasons are, the fact remains that we must live near the cross so that our peace may be continual. "Peace I live with you, my peace I give unto you." (John 14:27)
