Peace with God, Romans 5:1

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Peace of God, Philippians 4:6-8

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
"Give me humility, in which alone is rest, and deliver me from pride, which is the heaviest of burdens.” Thomas Merton, monk and poet
