There once was a King who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The King looked at all the pictures, but there were only two he really liked and he had to choose between them.
One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror, for peaceful towering mountains were all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace.
The other picture had mountains too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky from which rain fell and in which lightening played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming waterfall. This did not look peaceful at all. But when the King looked, he saw behind the waterfall a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock. In the bush a mother bird had built her nest. There, in the midst of the rush of angry water, sat the mother bird on her nest... perfect peace.
Which picture do you think won the prize?
The King chose the second picture. Do you know why? "Because," explained the King, "peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be …calm in your heart! That is the real meaning of peace."

for i got saved in 1992 and i was fulled with the power of the Holly spirit.for about my childhood life i never saw the parental love,i was mistreated because i grew from my step dad's home,surelyi new not that i was to grow into a useful person,for what led all those is during my growth i missed so many things such as going to school,for no body loved me and they tried their level best to kill me but as God says that i knew you before, he never allowed death to take me. i was surrendered to evil spirit so that they may kill me. what i remember very well is that one day they tied to tree and i was about to die but my sister came and released me from the tree, it was avery bad time that she was killed and i remained alone. i thank our Godbecause the word says '' i will not die but live and will proclaim what the LORD has done'' PSALM 117:17.
Surely i have passed through a very hard time thruogh out my life,so as the life was very painful i grew up and became a vey good drunker, i used to go for alcohol and also i uused other drugs to the extent of being hated more, i thank God that as people continued tohate me for him loved me more.
WAY HOW I GOT SAVED
One day i went for alcohol in the bar which was located at our neighbour village called Kanyanda,it was 7:50 pm, i let the bar for home and as i was on the way going home stagling side and side, infront of me frached a very big light which resembled nating an this world, i was a fraid and immediatly i felled on the ground, on opening my eyes i saw a man with a very bright face standing besides my, since i knew that God has never existed i thought may be one of the dead has came on my way but the face was different from those i have ever seen,
The man called my name and said '' SANDE,SANDE ,SAND '' he got my hand and rised me up, in thatvery time i saw the steps from the ground moving up words, we moved and on reaching wherei never knew that it was the heaven, a big gate was opened before us and we moved inside, truelly the heaven is there and i my self saw it, the man led me before avery beaughtful throne, on which the son of God seat, i saw Jesus with my eyes and he ordered the Angel to take me where those who die without axceping God where the go, my dear friend the place is very painful, i remember i was locked in a very smoll cage which was full of great heat, heard men , women,children crying and also where i was i was crying because the place was full of pain, the Angel by them he was stand a distance from where i was and in that very time i saw Satancoming towords me and he tried to caryy me but the Angel stoped him with his great power so the Angel used the same power and carried out of the cage, on reaching him,he torched his hand upon my head and i was refleched , we went before God.
