Do you have true peace in every circumstance and trouble and issue in your life?

You can!

As believers, Paul reminds us that we have a peace (God’s shalom) that surpasses all understanding available in Christ that will guard our inner life.

In this episode, Nathan talks about this incredible peace and what it means to find it amidst your troubles.
