Peace That Exceeds Understanding
by Chuck Swindoll
Is it possible
to have peace and calmness when the events all around you are
telling you that you can't? Chuck Swindoll states that the way
to this peace-shalom-is through a simple but complete trust in
God's promises of support. That's why the world cannot understand
this kind of inexplicable peace. It can't be manufactured apart
from a willingness to release our cares into God's loving care.
