When I was a kid, I used to play the video game Super Mario Brothers.
When you play Super Mario Brothers, as you travel through the mushroom kingdom, if you acquire the star—the happy star with the pleasant eyes—you temporarily become invincible.
When you get the star, the star doesn’t change your environment. But the star changes you. The star empowers you.
The peace of God is like the star on Super Mario Brothers. The peace of God may not change things around you. But the peace of God can change things within you. The peace of God can empower you to manage and maneuver, despite what’s happening around you.
