Life, and our fallen state, will eventually bring anxiety and stress to everyone, especially to those who commit to following Christ. That’s part of the plan. That is the broken heart. King Benjamins people where very righteous, but felt worthless and fallen (the broken heart). They then appealed to Christ for his mercy and were forgiven and changed by Him– then they felt joy and peace. We cannot create or earn peace by trying a little harder to perfect ourselves. Christ is the source of our peace and we access it the same way that Benjamins people did, and Alma did, and Enos did, and Lamoni's father did; they plead to Christ for his mercy and received a remission of sins– were born again, even redeemed.

Thank you for sharing that peace He brings. It's strange to see that in Mathew 10 ,our Savior offers us a sword instead of peace. But as we follow his teachings we can use His sword to cut away those distractions you mention...and are left with His peace that fills our life. We must ALLOW Him to work His miracles but acting!
