WALKING in a pine forest on the
Fleurieu Peninsula I sensed a deep peace.
There was no traffic noise, no distant
human voices or overhead aircraft.
In the distance was the occasional bird-call
which drew me deeper into the tranquillity of
the hundreds of acres of tall timbers.
Other than the fact the trees were in such
perfectly straight lines, in grids of different
ages and some had been removed by
mechanical means, it was hard to believe that
another human being existed on the planet.
I was able to forget almost everything and
concentrate on the reason I was there: to still
my spirit and commune with God.
After a lengthy sojourn in my new-found
hiding place I returned to my car on the
perimeter of my paradise.
The motor broke the silence and the radio
sprang to life; it was the news, full of murder,
mayhem and turmoil.
How can humans create something as quiet
as a pine forest yet also create such turbulence
Can we find a place of peace without
having to drive for two hours, half of which
is in bumper-to-bumper traffic? To survive I
have to interact with a chaotic world.
My vocation requires me to get involved
in the turmoil of other people's lives,
introducing some order into the confusion of
How can I continue in that world after a
few days in this peaceful playground of God?
The old prophet Isaiah said "you will keep
in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose
thoughts are fixed on you! [Isa 26:3] and
that's the key.
It doesn't matter where you are or what's
going on around you, peace is found in
relationship with God.
He can help you navigate the difficulties,
make wise decisions and stay calm in the
middle of the storm.
While a forest can be found somewhere,
His peace can be found in the middle of your
circumstances every day.
It's simple enough to find relationship with
God. Just humbly recognise His love for you,
allow Him to control your life and ask Him
to reveal Himself to you.
He's there waiting for you and as you learn
to trust in Him perfect peace will come.
Any minister of a Christian church in
Gawler would love to help you if you would
like us to. Give one a call today.
