Peace in Christ

I am so grateful we were able to have our stake women’s conference before all of this craziness set in. I left there feeling like I could withstand anything that comes my way if, I choose to believe in God, the Eternal Father and in His son, Jesus Christ!⁣ ⁣

Little did we know what was coming our way in just a couple of weeks time after that; a pandemic, quarantines, earthquakes, and enough changes to last me a lifetime! Our world is filled with turmoil, chaos, and commotion. All our sense of day-to-day normalcy has vanished. Or has it?

Is God trying to tell us something? Is He trying to tell us to slow down and enjoy what matters most?

President Thomas S. Monson said, “The most important things in life almost always involve the people around us.” Our families and our relationships with them and other loved ones and our devotion and commitment to God and our Savior Jesus Christ should be what we are focusing our time and energy on.⁣⁣

⁣President Henry B. Eyring has said, “If we have faith in Jesus Christ, the hardest as well as the easiest times in life can be a blessing.” Focus on our blessings!

President Nelson has recently put out a couple of videos and messages, "Hope" and "The Future of the Church: Preparing the World for the Savior’s Second Coming," which can be found on the Church's website. These are wonderful messages that can bring peace into our troubled hearts and minds. Christ said, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27⁣⁣

⁣From the song "Peace in Christ:"⁣
There is peace in Christ⁣
When we learn of Him⁣
Feel the love He felt for us⁣
When He bore our sin⁣
Listen to His words⁣
Let them come alive⁣
If we know Him as He is⁣
There is peace in Christ⁣
He gives us hope⁣
When hope is gone⁣
He gives us strength⁣
When we can’t go on⁣
He gives us shelter⁣
In the storms of life⁣
When there’s no peace on earth⁣
There is peace in Christ⁣⁣
⁣I know that there is peace in Christ. I have felt it many times in my life and do feel it now even amidst all of the uncertainty we may be experiencing. I choose to believe! -Janae Poulson
