Quote to Consider:

Most Christians have come to have peace WITH God, but very few Christians have come to have the peace OF God.
-James MacDonald, Walk in the Word

I heard this on the radio while on my way home tonight.  It kind of stuck with me.  His message was more on Philippians 4:8, but here's the whole Bible passage for you to chew on:

Philippians 4:
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
