Our Stake President talked about peace today and the difference between peace of conscience, peace of mind and the peace of God. He talked about how peace of conscience is a spiritual peace knowing that we are repenting and constantly trying. It is what urges us to be better and to continue repenting. Peace of mind comes from having our temporal needs met and is interconnected with peace of conscience.
The peace of God come when these two forces work in harmony in our lives and our will becomes intertwined with God's it is the kind of peace that allow the righteous to suffer and recognize the hand of God. It is the peace that the comforter can bring and allow us to be truly near unto God.
This is the season of good tidings and peace on earth.
God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
C. S. Lewis
