Parish Nurse Notes…

Haven of Peace…

“Peace in our time expresses the longing inside each of us, as we view our own daily choices staring us in the face. Outside of ourselves, we hope against hope that international brushfire wars will not erupt into larger conflicts.”

“Peace is the quest of every human heart. If it could be bought, people would pay millions for it. The skyrocketing sales of books dealing with peace of mind and soul testify that they have touched a resonant chord in the lives of millions. Psychiatrists’ offices are jammed.”

“Jesus says, ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give your rest’ (Matthew 11:28). Christ alone gives peace that passes understanding, a peace the world cannot give or take away. It is very moving to hear the life stories of those who have restlessly searched for years and have finally found peace in Christ.

There is one available and trustworthy haven of peace. Real, lasting peace comes from Christ alone; “He himself is our peace’ (Ephesians 2:14).”

May we all know the peace that comes only from Him.
