A few days ago, my wife was holding a sleeping toddler, the son of a friend. The little fellow seemed pretty content in her arms, even after he woke up and realized who was holding him. However, he was much happier when his mother came back into the room and he reached for her loving embrace.
The Psalmist says that we can experience true peace in the arms of the Lord. The world may offer its own comforts and pleasures, but only the Lord offers true peace.
“But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me.”—Psalm 131:2.
