A man without chaos

In times of chaos, Jesus was a man of peace.

During the storm that many men thought was going to take their lives, Jesus was a man of peace.

When dragged to the top of a mountain to be killed, Jesus was a man of peace.

How many times have I lost myself because I thought the situation I was in was the worst thing that could have possibly happened to me?
I look back and think, if only I would've had more peace.

It is true worship to praise God and to seek his eternal comfort and peace during times of tribulation, times of weariness, times where you just want to give up and cry your heart out.

Jesus gave us the greatest example of seeking God's peace when he continually sought time to be alone with his Father so that he could hear nothing else but what God was speaking to him.
How else would anyone be able to find peace in a world filled with constant conversations?

That is my challenge. To seek the peace of God in times of quietness with him, knowing that his peace is a gift, and all I have to do is ask for it.
