Quote: Absence of trouble and the presence of God

Peace and the absence of trouble

“Peace is not the absence of trouble. Peace is the presence of God.”

Good quote! And kind of the flip side to this video on evil. Where evil is not the presence of something, but the privation of a good – the absence of something.

On the other hand, many people think peace is the absence of conflict, challenge or suffering. I’m not sure we’d find any peace on Earth if that were the case! But that’s not peace. Peace is the presence of God despite and throughout the trouble.
