There is peace, when you choose God's will, instead of your own! When you follow His lead, and toss away your own agenda. Our way, no peace, his way, perfect peace. I know this from experience! Whnenever people operate out of the will of God, you just don't have a peace about it. No matter how good it may seem to you, your intentions may be great, but there just is that lack of peace, that just wont go away! Then when you step back into the perfect will of God, the peace returns. His peace is truly amazing, unlike any other feeling you ever felt, it warms your body. Your heart,soul, body, mind and spirit, is at total ease. Its when you know without doubt, that your Savior truly loves you, and is here to stay, no matter what, its amazing! Its incredible! There really aren't words powerful enough to describe it. Its when you know that no matter what happens, you are going to be ok. You quit worrying and beating yourself up, if you tried your best, and could have done better, you know that there is a God that will work out any loose ends that needed to be tied, if need be. Its when you arent blessed with what you think you need, but still feel ok, because you believe that, if you needed it, you would have gotten it, because Jesus always blesses us with what we need. Peace to me means, when I keep having to miss church service because my kids are sick, or bad weather, and I used to worry that I was missing out on a very important message that I needed to hear, but now I know, that if it was a sermon I should have been at, I can trust God to reveal it to me some other way. Its when we finally believe that our life will not always be as upside down as it feels right now, that Jesus, makes a way where there is no way. Its when even in the midst of the upside down of life, you can still feel His loving arms wrapped around you. When you feel rejected, like no one notices, no one cares, you know that He will always notice, always care. This is what peace means to me!God bless you! I thank God that when life tries to rob us of our peace, we know who to cling too, to comfort us, and settle us. We will always have inner peace, as long as we have Jesus!Life may get bad, but eventually, God brings that smile back to our face, because of His perfect peace He gives us. I am so glad He loves us that much!

I choose peace. I choose to run to Him. I choose to be held in His powerful embrace. I certainly choose peace. Thank you for your post.

Isn't it wonderfully loving of our Lord to warn us that we're on the wrong path by giving us that lack of peace? He is so good!! And His peace is precious!

Are there spots in your article where you could natural paragraph breaks? It might make it easier to read.

Some valuable and well-expressed thoughts, and a great title!!
