Light the Candle of Peace

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be completely at peace? Peace of mind, peace with your family and friends, peace at work, peace through trials and tribulations…the list goes on and on. There are many aspects of our lives where we desire peace, beg for it, even, but are too busy fretting to notice that it’s right before us. God places peace in our lives daily. He knows that we require it to live out our lives on Earth, because, without it, we are quickly thrown into turmoil. The tricky part is actually seeing the tranquility amongst the disorder.

As a junior in high school I had a lot on my mind, like; grades, where I would be going to college and being a good secretary for my FFA chapter, but, something extra was burdening my mind this particular morning.
