The author’s words
First of all, my wife and I thank to the Lord. Our family overcame the hardship trip through His guidance, care, support and blessing.
Looking back we met so thorns, confusion, anxiety. We did walk in tears, in suffering and other problems. God knows the sufferings of our family. He’s not standing there to laugh at us, but He came to wipe off tears, comforted us. He accompanied us in adversities. He radiated light on our way. He gives us joy and hope. We trust in Him. He is the living rock covering our lives. We rely on the rock in all our life.
We walk step by step according to His promises in the Bible. Therefore, when our family was in trial, we think immediately of Job. Instead of complaining God we decided to surrender all my burden to Him and believe in His Word in Scripture I Peter 5:7 Peter, “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
Not only did we hold His precious promises, but also call on His own phone number,” Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’” (Jeremiah 33:3).
In the crisis of life, our family trust in God, walking in his ways, love Him, praise and worship Him. We feel joyful, peaceful, happy and realize that life in God means wonderfully. Although carrying a heavy cross on our shoulders with anxiety, but we feel peaceful in God’s care.
Of course, life is not always peaceful as the like a Autumn lake or beautiful like a dream. Life has got difficulties, sometimes so much miserably hard positions with up and down. Once crossing the sea for freedom facing with danger. Another time, my shop was taken fire. And our house was too. But this is only ordinary tests. The biggest challenge in life that we encountered with two disease children.
There are so many worries in life on the earth. We daily encounter obstacles and challenges in all every way. But we have always trust in the Lord Jesus. Although, facing up with storm and stress, we always refuge in the power of God through His promise in Isaiah 40:31, ” but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint”. Indeed, when we fully trust Compassion Father, we feel very peaceful. Walking with God is soar on wings like eagles; run and not grow weary… When looking back what happened, we feel blessings that God has given us.
I read many books and watch the news every day, I see the life of those who have no God is a hopeless life. They live freely to follow desiring of sensual mind. Finally they end their life in the meaningless things, because they are not aware of the Creator.
Today there are countless rich, brilliant, talented, famous and successful people in the world. They have got everything such as houses, cars, money in the banks. They have got an abundant physical life, but their minds are empty and their heart full of anxiety. Some people could not find how to live a meaning life, and they did choose death. Why? Because they do not believe in God. Despite their mind is brilliant with plans, programs … but then eventually they will become the failures .
Therefore, it is blessing for anyone to go in ways of God. Those who find peace of mind are enjoying with the living river of God. Every morning we wake up to see birds singing, flowers blooming under the the sunshine, and all are filled with the love of God. Indeed, the joy and happiness to anyone to walk in Him.

Word of God:
“Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me: Tree Lord’s rod and staff comfort me.”
“Peace in Jesus” is a book which recounting up and down of family life and individual author.
The life of everybody is turning points with sadness and happiness day after day. That looks like Autumn leaves fall down going after time. However, there are the turning points in life become memorable memories. They do not fade but live forever. Those were the dangerous voyage, story of painful illness of two children, difficult life in the USA…
How time flies! My family has lived in the USA for 25 years – ¼ of century. I now have gray hair with many children. I recall my childhood with stories such as crossing the border, first days in new land… I always thank God for what happened in my life. Is this a mystery that God has planned for my family? Yes! This is indeed a mysterious miracle that God has done!
The beginning of my journey until new life has started in “new world”, we have experienced peace in Christ Jesus. Peace of mind is a enough and sufficient condition in Christ Jesus. But how can you have this peace? Inviting readers follow me into the story.
I ran to Jesus to find source of true peace. Because God is the giver the peace to the soul, as a hymn “My Peace”
Written by Keith Routledge
1. My peace I give unto you It’s a peace that the world cannot give It’s a peace that the world cannot understand Peace to know, peace to live, My peace I give unto you 2. My love I give unto you It’s a love that the world cannot give It’s a love that the world cannot understand Love to know, love to live My love I give unto you
I believe that this hymn, the author took the idea from the Bible verse in John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” When I heard this hymn, every word of each sentence literally touch my heart. I felt new power. I look like a dry tree in the desert, someone watered on it. The tree wasn’t limp, it became green, full of vitality although living the sweltering desert. How strange! Wonderful! The waterer is the Lord Jesus Christ.
Word of God says: “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13). Discovering happiness and peace in life, we should look for the Lord until meet Him. We must not look for Him carelessly, but have to look for Him intensely, carefully with all your heart, you surely will meet Him. When you meet Him, you will be relaxed. All the bitterness in life will vanish. All sorrow and anxiety will go away. Our heart will be changed. The Lord adjust our way and we will receive true peace as His Word promises in the Bible, “ Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
