“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 find rest. It is an empty space that will never be filled with what the world has to offer. It robs us of peace and allows fear to fester where HOPE can't be found. 

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

Jesus provides hope and comfort when we experience life in Him. He continues to provide perfect peace today. He helps us connect with the Father and receive the strength of His amazing love. And, He opens our hearts for His will.

Jesus is our precious companion! He guides us with strength from the Father. He will show us how to find perfect PEACE and help us remember it comes with surrender to God. He will humble us in holiness and hear our prayers of praise, when we have been nurtured by His love. And, He will remind us why calm will come, if we learn to faithfully TRUST. 

Dear God, Thank you for Your presence in our lives. Forgive us when we forget to trust in YOU. Help us embrace a grateful heart, so we will discover abundant joy! We will honor the love of Your faithfulness and allow Christ to cradle us in care. And, we will find calm, as He fills us with the gift of a peaceful heart. Amen
