Jacob Boehme

Unless you wholly give yourself up to the Life of our Lord Jesus Christ, and resign your will wholly to Him, and desire nothing without Him, you shall never come to such a rest as no Creature can disturb…You shall find that in your own power, and without such a total surrender to God, and to the Life of God, you can never arrive at such a rest as this, or the true quiet of the soul, wherein no Creature can molest you, or so much as touch you.

Alexander MacLaren

He (God) must give us Peace with God, with ourselves, with men, with circumstances, before we can go forth effectually to bring Peace to others. If He has given us these good things, He has bound us to spread them. Let us do so. And if our Peace never is spoken in vain as regards others, it will come back to us again; and we shall be kept in perfect Peace, even in the midst of strife, until we enter at last into the city of Peace and serve the King of Peace forever.

C. S. Lewis

The moment you wake up each morning, all your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists in shoving it all back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other, larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in.

Hannah Whitall Smith

In the secret of God’s tabernacle no enemy can find us, and no troubles can reach us. The pride of man and the strife of tongues find no entrance into the pavilion of God. The secret of his presence is a more secure refuge than a thousand Gibraltars. I do not mean that no trials come. They may come in abundance, but they cannot penetrate into the sanctuary of the soul, and we may dwell in perfect peace even in the midst of life fiercest storms.
