Bible Verses on Peace

Peace, whether we're referring to war or the peace within us, is what we all strive for. Finding true peace only comes from one place, and that is God. We WILL encounter hardships throughout all of our lives. Whether we are Christian or not, there will be times when we struggle to find peace and contentment. When that happens, you must turn to God. You will only find the answer through Him and within yourself - no one else can give it to you.

And you don't need to travel to some distant land to find peace. You also don't have to lock yourself in your room to never see the light of day. If you pray for peace, then God will help you find it. It could be as simple as accepting your situation in life or knowing that "everything will be okay."

Because it will. With God, you won't be alone in life. You can FEEL more at peace while you attempt to do all of the things that you want to do. The anxiety, the nervousness and the fear will fade away. Remember - having peace doesn't mean just having a boring life. It means you are able to cope with the life you have and be satisfied with it. Our life is God's gift!!!
