This is a copy of a drawing I have in my room called "Peace" by David Bowman. It is one of my favorite pictures, and was given to me when I definitely needed more peace.
Life is crazy. It is constantly changing, bringing new challenges and opportunities. It's hard, even impossible to deal with everything on our own. Christ understands all of our struggles, hardships, and weaknesses. He believes in us when we have a hard time believing in ourselves. On the back of this picture it says, "The peace Jesus Christ offers you and me is completely unique to Him. It can't be found from other sources. Whatever the distress, the anguish, the hurt, the sin... He offers refuge from them all in a way that is indescribable unless you have experienced it... There is no substitute for His peace." Time and my own trials have shown me that this is true. My testimony of Christ gets stronger everyday as I learn more about Him and try to be like Him. Although I still have a while, I'm so excited to serve a mission and show others the happiness that the Light and Peace of Christ can bring them. Im so grateful for the gospel, and hopefully one day, I can remake this by giving my older brother and best friend a long awaited hug.💙
