Peace in Troubled Times

Mt Timpanogos Temple, American Fork, Ut.

One of the greatest gifts that the Holy Ghost gives us in these last days is peace in the middle of chaos and trouble.

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”    John 14: 27

I’ve been learning (over the past few years) that everything that gives me a feeling of physical safety (jobs, people, possessions) can be taken away.   When it’s all gone, I continue to exist.  The challenge then is how to rebuild?  We  must rebuild, because life will go on.

Look for a moment at nature.  It continues to build around everything in the way.  After a fire, a forest will re-seed.  When a road is built, the water runs off of the road and gives water to the vegitation that thrives at the edges of the concrete.

Heavenly Father is that way too.  He seems to be able to take every bad situation and make something better out of it.  This is a talent I am trying to aquire!
