How do you feel peace?

A new day from heaven will dawn upon us.
It will shine on those who live in darkness,
In the shadow of death.
It will guide us into the path of peace. – Luke 1:78-79
We could all use some peace in our lives today and God is just waiting to guide us into the path of peace – if only we will follow.
