A thought from the scriptures

Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace. - Psalm 29:2, 11

"We plead for peace in our prayers and thoughts," observed Elder Marvin J. Ashton of the Quorum of the Twelve at the October 1985 general conference. "Where is peace? Can we ever enjoy this great gift while wars, rumors of wars, discord, evil and contention swirl all around us? The answer is yes. . . .

"True peace must not be dependent upon conditions or happenings. Peace must stem from an inward contentment built upon trust, faith and goodwill toward God, fellowmen and self. It must be constantly nurtured by the individual who is soundly anchored to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Only then can a person realize that the trials and tribulations of daily life are less important than God's total goodness.

"Lasting peace is an eternal quest. Peace does come from obedience to the law. Peace comes to those who develop character and trust."
