Heavenly Peace For All

In terms of the world, peace is defined as someday when there will be no more conflict.  Personal peace is not that simple.  We expect our lives to be full of conflict, trials and challenging circumstances everyday. But there is a peace that is greater than ourselves and beyond this world. The story of the Christmas baby Jesus does not end like a song with him “sleeping in heavenly peace”.  The story continues beyond the song as the baby becomes the Prince of Peace and offers the way for us to make peace with God. A peace that holds our feet on the Rock when all else sinks, and anchors our soul when all else is swept away.  A peace  that speaks to our spirit during the storms of life and says, “Peace Be still.”  This is not for some day in the future.  This is here and this is now for all who embrace their King, just as Mary embraced her baby on that Christmas night so long ago.      T.
