Indestructible peace

With God's help, you can be a peacemaker.

There Are Currently hundreds of self-help books that try to help individuals find peace of mind. These books offer many approaches to stress-reduction, including different diets. Some of these methods can seem to help for a while, but none of them can offer truly indestructible peace if they treat peace as something that you experience only as long as you adhere to certain physical criteria (less stress, less sugar, less caffeine, and so forth).

I have found two books that have shown me that peace is not something fragile or hard to maintain. And they have offered lasting, healing solutions to the everyday turmoil of life. They are the Holy Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. They contain numerous promises of everlasting peace, restored peace, and instruction on attaining peace. For example, "Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord" (II Pet. 1:2), "To be spiritually minded is life and peace" (Rom. 8:6), and "The calm and exalted thought or spiritualapprehension is at peace" (Science and Health, p. 506). So peace can be attained by getting to know God better, by gaining a better understanding of our relationship to Him.
