Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14: 27

God guides our thoughts and prepares us to handle our days. And when we allow ourselves to be led by the Savior, He recognizes the heart of our need. He places HOPE where strength is found and allows us to witness His power of love. He shows how to gratefully welcome PEACE. 

Loving Jesus won't keep trouble out of our lives. He told us there will be trials and tribulations. (John 16:33) We will ALL experience sadness and despair. There will be moments we will weep and mourn. But in the midst of our pain, Jesus WILL reach us. He will show how it feels to be cradled in care. 

We must ALWAYS be ready to hold on tight! He will hold us with arms of strength and prepare us to trust in the guiding of God’s will. Jesus conquered death and overcame the world! He experienced anguish and pain. Surely, He understands our own. We will find strength in Him, when we recognize what He has done and humble our hearts for praise. 

God is worthy of our PRAISE! In EVERY situation, He is constant and He is HERE. If we prayerfully examine our hearts and surrender to Him, He will strengthen us. We will never be without the power of His presence, if we trust in Him and choose to remain faithful…

Dear God, Thank you for Your presence in our lives. Forgive us when we neglect to humble our hearts and welcome the offering of Your love. Thank you for Jesus! Bring hope to our hearts when we deal with pain. Remind us we are held by Your holiness. We will gratefully welcome the PEACE of Jesus and honor You with the offering of our love. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
