Peace

The Bible talks about God’s “peace which passes all understanding”. I had always thought that to be a peace that comes from God which we can’t understand. What I have come to understand is that it is a peace that bypasses the need to find an answer or the need to find understanding. Much of our worry is caused by us striving to find the right answer, striving to understand why something happened or why someone did something. Much of our anxiety would be taken away if we found the answer we are striving to find. God’s peace negates the need for us to come up with answers it lets us just be. A place of peace, in God, is a place where we can just be. It is usually when we find this place that we are in a much better place to make informed and wise decisions and also to come to a better level of understanding about a situation.
