Life seems to constantly work against us, throwing us curveballs that disrupt our balance, security and peace. We try just about everything we can think of, seeking out the secret to escaping our challenging circumstances so that we can experiencing peace with God, ourselves, and others. But the answer to peace and fulfillment is not found in running away or in adding something that temporarily masks the disappointment and pain. The answer is found in facing the challenge head on, and instead of focusing on changing what is on the outside that bothers us, Scripture points us to focus on changing what is on the inside. We can’t change others, but God can change us. And when He does, we discover that peace and fulfillment is possible, in spite of the challenges that surround us.
