I'm super happy to be back on the blog this week.
I've been trying to think about what to post this week and I finally think I figured it out.
There is a lot of chaos in the world today, and if you don't believe me, go watch the news. As such people everywhere are searching for peace.
Why is it that people crave peace so much? Is it simply because the world is full of chaos? Or are there other reasons?
Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said, "Many voices from the world in which we live tell us we should live at a frantic pace. There is always more to do and more to accomplish. Yet deep inside each of us is a need to have a place of refuge where peace and serenity prevail, a place where we can reset, regroup, and reenergize to prepare for future pressures."
Where is the world can we find this place that he talks about? This place of refuge? This place of peace?
I would like to suggest that we can find it anywhere. Look around where you are at, right now. Where are you? Are you sitting at home? Or maybe at work? You could be at school? Or maybe you are on your way somewhere?
Take a moment, pause, listen to what is going on around you. Think about the holiday season that is coming. Why do we even have this season? Think of the reason of this season.
Jesus Christ. Our Saviour and Redeemer. The King of Kings. The Lord of Lords. The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6, 2 Nephi 19:6)
I testify that through Christ we can find the peace we are all searching for. And it does not matter where we are, we can make each place a place of peace.
Merry Christmas!! (Check out this site for a wonderful Christmas video!!)
