With the pace of life in today’s society, almost all of us have experienced a lack of peace at some point in our lives. We all know what it’s like to have a too-long to-do list and too few hours in the day.
Thankfully, true peace is not something you need to manufacture! God is the source of peace, and He gives freely when we seek rest in Him. ❤️
