Finding Peace In a Dark World
As a young child, I became religious. However, in my heart there lingered no peace. When about to enter the eighth grade, I went to Daily Vacation Bible School at the Oak Grove school house. There I heard that “All have sinned, Christ died for sinners, and rose again.”
I believed these things in my head. I thought of myself as a Christian, but I did not know what a Christian was.
At times I took out the Bible and read it, but I did not understand it.
About eight years later, the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart, “Lynn, you are a sinner. Jesus died for your sins. He arose that you may live.” It took a nervous breakdown to bring me to this place.
At this time “peace like a river” flooded my heart. However, my life was not free from troubles. God gave me a calm in life's storms. When things don't seem to go right, it may hit me at the time, but it doesn't last long. When I lay in my bed awake, the peace of God descends upon me. God wants this peace for all those who have chosen Jesus as their Saviour.
