I was reading a talk by Pres. Henry B. Eyring, and contemplating the need for "Peace on Earth", a phrase often heard this time of year. I came to the conclusion that we do have peace on earth if we want it! Pres. Eyring said:
"More than any other people on earth, we have, through the glorious events of the Restoration of the gospel, felt the peace that the Lord offered His people with the words 'Be still, and know that I am God.' "
Maybe we can't stay wars or world-wide anxiety, but if we just be still, and trust in the Lord, truly we can feel peace. If the peace begins in our hearts we can spread it to our homes, and then communities! If everyone trusted in the Lord and did his will, we would have peace on earth! My goal is to really try and trust the Lord. I know to often I demand justice when what I really need to give is mercy! I wish all of you Peace in your homes and hearts this season as we turn to our Savior!
