They all talk about things like control, balance, worry and stress. They come with suggestions like:
- Meditate and be still. Slow down.
- Be grateful and smile more.
- Focus on your breathing. Stay calm.
- Spend time outside and be in nature.
- Help others and do good deeds.
There are many more recommendations, and some work better than others. But, none of them ever give you the internal peace you’re seeking.
The evangelist Billy Graham once said, “Suppose you had all the knowledge and all the wealth and all the power in the whole world today and lost your soul. You see, the whole country is on a quest for something, in drugs, in sex, and in entertainment. We want something, but we don’t know quite what it is. And it’s elusive; we don’t find it.”
There’s an empty space inside of each of us and people believe they can fill it with various things to satisfy their need. They believe their lives will be full of contentment, happiness and peace once they fill that internal void.
Billy Graham went on to say, “Solomon was the great king of Israel… His income was staggering. Nobody that ever lived in history could compare with Solomon in financial worth. Anything he could dream of, he had it. You know how many wives he had? Seven hundred, but that didn’t satisfy… Every pleasure at his beck and call. He thought it would bring the peace that he longed for and then he said, ‘But as I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless.’ It was a bubble that burst. It didn’t satisfy. Something beyond it satisfies. What is it?”
People have tried to find inner peace through experiences, fame, achievements, money, sex and everything under the sun. There’s a much better answer to the question.
Graham concludes, “Deep in your heart, something is missing. You don’t know what it is. The thing that’s missing is that personal relationship with Christ.”
Let Jesus Christ change your life and give you the inner peace you desire.
Step 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!
Step 2 – People are sinful and separated from God.
Step 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!
Step 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
