An old mentor of mine once told me, "I love how good the Lord is." And I often think of how right she was. He is good. Even when many things in our lives and all around us are not so good.
One of the good things He gives us is peace. My name, "Erin" means "Peace" and so I've always desired peace in my life, craved it. But somehow, the things around me in my life - my circumstances - sometimes seem anything but peaceful. Yet, I remember reading a verse years ago that taught me about peace. The peace that surpasses understanding, as the Bible says. It taught me about God's peace, the kind that wraps you up and chases away your fears, silents your anxiety, calms your beating heart.
