When scripture tells us a peace is available
that “exceeds anything we can understand” it means peace is available even when
what is causing our lack of peace is still present and active in our life. This is a God-peace that comes in the middle
of the turmoil and simply rests upon lives as a gift despite what is happening
around us.

This peace doesn’t come because at some point
you finally understand why everything took place that has made your life so
unsettling. Understanding your present reality does not and cannot bring this
peace. This is why we are told the peace of God is experienced in a place
beyond our ability to understand its presence in our lives – it simply comes to

This peace is only discovered when we are
willing to exchange a state of anxiety for a prayer of thankfulness – a prayer
that is offered from within our current conflict.  Once this exchange is made it will become the
invitation that ushers in the peace you are seeking.
