Peace Unlocks the Door to Joy

If we must want something, “peace” is the one thing we should desire above all else. Peace is the key that unlocks the door to joy, and when we are joyful, I have no doubt the Lord smiles. He wants the best for His children, and when we are content and happy, He is pleased.

Several years ago I was battling the demons of this world and I was losing the war. One day I made the Silent night - peacecomment, “All I want is peace.”.

The thing is, I had a wonderful wife, a loving family, and more “stuff” than I surely needed but what was missing—what I truly “needed”—was faith. Oh, I had faith, but I’d put it in a closet or drawer somewhere and wasn’t using it.

When we have faith in God, He will fill us with peace, love and joy, and we will find rest in green pastures beside quiet waters.

He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters Psalm 23:2
