Each day I have the unique opportunity to meet with many people waiting for answers.  Answers in their relationships, with their children, with their grief, in their sickness, with careers, conflict with family members, and the list goes on.  It can be extremely painful to live a life seemingly with no answers.  It can feel like God has left us, or found someone else to focus on.  As time goes on we begin to panic, to experience frustration, bitterness and anger.  Yet as Christians, it is important to remember that God is not on our time table, and in all cases, He works in the midst of our crisis and frustration.

The peace that we search for, comes not from a lack of conflict in our lives, but often as a result of these crisis.  God wants us to see Him as the answer to our peace.  It is only through conflict that we first recognize true peace, and can grasp it.  God wants our attention, but it is often a product of many distractions.  The key is to trust on Him for true peace, not a deadline, or relationship, or position.  The world would lead us to believe that peace is the absences of crisis, I would argue that peace is a product of crisis, through the Lord.

As crisis presents itself, learn to see each conflict as an opportunity and condition of experiencing the peace of God. 

Rev. 21:23, "And the city has no need for the sun or of the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God has illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb."
