March before break,

It is a busy time around here at the seminary, midterms and papers are due. It can be a bit absurd with many things going on. What it takes to maintain peace in many types of situations is a trust in divine will. The divine will is what many call 'divine providence', and this trust in providence has to come from a very personal relationship with our Lord Jesus. These few weeks I have been learning a bit about how much my own life is in Gods hands. How much my faults, shortcomings, and those of others are a cause for my own lack of peace. It is a constant fight with evil to maintain ones peace and Jesus's very desire is to give us peace. He wants us to undestand oursleves our dignity and through Him we can and must find peace. Anyway, with Christ and seeing our final end, we can see everything truly and with that we have peace. This is all very fine and good you say? I highly reckomend a book to you which may explain this very search much better than I. http://http://www.amazon.com/Searching-Maintaining-Peace-Small-Treatise/dp/0818909064
