Suffering or Peace?

Suffering comes to everyone. (Anthony DeStefano, author)

That’s not a very encouraging thought, is it? But DeStefano continues: “No matter how smart you are, no matter how rich you are, there’s just no way to prevent ‘external’ events from interfering with your plans. That’s why you can’t ever allow your peace of mind to depend on external events.” Such peace comes from a settled inner contentment.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7)
