    Very wonderful words to live by. Peace through the years.

    When we choose not to make Jesus Lord of our lives we remain open to whatever evil thoughts the adversary, the devil brings. After all he is in a battle for our souls. So if we allow him to, he will fill our minds with evil thoughts.
    When we're troubled in any way we could take it all to the Lord in prayer and receive His Peace and Comfort within us. He is the only one who could satisfy us.
