How to Have Internal Peace

In the world we are living there is so much turmoil many of us often feel like giving up on this life. There is so much that is happening in our lives and around us, we often long for peace in our hearts.

However, the peace we so long in our lives, societies, and the worldwide cannot derive from forming a one-world government or carrying out activities such as hypnotism or yoga.

True peace, an everlasting peace comes from God. Man has not realized for long God is the only who can fill the void in his/her heart. He is our Creator, he understands us more than anybody else.

If you are longing for peace, and we all do need, take time to read the followng Bible verses and meditate on them, then ask God to give you peace, and He will do that. The verses will not only help you to have the peace that surpasses understanding but also will renew your hope and strengthen your faith.

Thanks. Your case also rings true to me. Running away only to find there was no full satisfaction there but in God

Your words are so very true! I was born in a very religious family, but unfortunately my inner peace was never there until I turned away from God and came back again. Now thankfully I totally feel that inner peace you are talking about and like you said, no one can bring that to you except your Creater. Voted up and away!
