We light the second candle this Sunday on our Advent wreath...the Peace candle.
I had a lovely weekend until tonight when everything just sort of fell apart. So many things to handle, so many needy people in my lift and in my family. So, I find myself asking tonight, Lord, where is the peace?
In the quiet of the evening, I find myself thinking of trying to find peace in this world. There is no lasting peace here. Things can be great one minute and quickly turn before you know it. That's life.
So, we long for the Prince of Peace who came as a tiny baby to a hurting world. We long for Him to restore this world someday, bringing the peace that only He can offer.
Someday the Prince of Peace will reign and we will know His lasting peace. I choose to believe that promise.
