    Dan Walsh is the author of Perfect Peace in Imperfect Times a 31-Day Devotional crafted from the pages of Dan’s personal journal, written over the last several years.

    In Day 1 he wrote:

    I grew up in the sixties, during the height of the Vietnam War. I vividly remember thousands of protestors fighting with hundreds of policemen in riot gear, holding up signs that cried out for peace. Think of the irony: thousands of people screaming, swearing, punching, throwing rocks, breaking windows, being injured and injuring others in an effort to bring about world peace.

    This paragraph hit home to me. At that time, my then fiancée, was in Vietnam. I heard about the unrest all over our country about the war on the news every day. The people were saying that our military shouldn’t be over there. Then when they came home people treated the returning soldiers with contempt. This really bothered me as their deployment to Vietnam was under military orders. Many years later my husband was able to work through his frustrations while driving a semi-truck across the country. He said he did a lot of talking and yelling at God, and then finally felt at peace.

    On Day 2, Dan Walsh writes:

    If you’re like me, you’ve known moments of real peace. Moments when you’ve trusted God fully for your life, for everything going on in your life. In those moments, you knew real peace. The problem is, the word ‘moments.’ The moments didn’t last. The promise of Isaiah 26:3 is not to have moments of peace in our lives. The promise is that God would keep us in Perfect Peace.

    I agree with Dan, we should have perfect peace in our lives. Unfortunately we are human and don’t always keep our focus on God. We have to continually remind ourselves that God is in control.

    Dan shares the Scriptural life-lessons he’s learned in life in Perfect Peace in Imperfect Times. He used his challenging times and writes about them in a way that helps us to conquer our stress, worry and fear.
