Peace left, Peace found

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be calledWonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. ~Isaiah 9:6

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. ~John 14:27

To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. ~Romans 8:6

Peace is not always found in our circumstances, in a clean house, in perfect behaving children, in a believing husband, a cup of coffee, in grandchildren, in the abundance of money or in a certain "season" of the year, not the peace that Christ has left us. We are fooled if we believe that if we can obtain these we will have a peaceful mind for it will soon fade away as all things the world has to offer us. It is a shame that we often find ourselves caught up in the mind of the flesh so taken by the things of this world and what they have to offer us. The peace of Christ is eternal and unfading if we will hold fast and stand firm in our faith that He has given us we will be reminded of it's continual presence in our lives.
