A thought from the scriptures

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. - Rom. 8:5-6"Despite dismal conditions in the world and the personal challenges that come into every life, peace within can be a reality," Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin of the Council of the Twelve declared at the April 1991 general conference. "We can be calm and serene regardless of the swirling turmoil all about us. Attaining harmony within ourselves depends upon our relationship with our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, and our willingness to emulate Him by living the principles He has given us.

" . . . My brothers and sisters, we can be at peace if we `let virtue garnish [ourT thoughts unceasingly.' (D&C 121:45.) The power is in us as spirit children of our Heavenly Father. He and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, have provided the way for us to be at peace. We can enjoy that peace of God which passeth human understanding. (See Philip. 4:7.) We can enjoy it personally, within our families, in our communities, in our nations, and in our world if we will do the things that produce it."
