“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27

There is a weary place of need in those who long to discover peace. It is an empty space that will never be filled by what the world has to offer. It allows fear to fester where HOPE cannot dwell and it nurtures the wounds of all weakness. 

Before Jesus died, He told His disciples NOT to be troubled and afraid. He provided perfect peace to calm the minds of men and asked that they maintain it, even after He was gone. He told them to find peace with one another and discover PEACE with our mighty God.

JESUS provides HOPE and COMFORT when we experience life in Him. He continues to provide PEACE today. He helps us connect with the Father and receive the offering of His mighty love. And, He reminds us what to expect; if we open our hearts to His will.

Jesus is our precious companion! He will guide us by the strength of the Father. He will show us how to find rest and remind us why it comes with submission to God. He will humble us in holiness, pour calm in our hearts and lead us to a prayer of praise, if we allow ourselves to be blessed by His love. He will help us remember; peace WILL come, if we learn to faithfully trust. 

Dear God, We know we must praise You in ALL things. Sometimes, we forget; when fear festers in our hearts. Forgive us when we neglect to remember YOU are so much bigger than our fear. Help us embrace a humble heart of praise, so we will welcome PEACE and JOY! We will honor the love of Your faithfulness and allow Christ to cradle us in care. And, we will find calm, when we are filled with the presence of Your perfect peace. Amen
