“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27).”
Jesus said these words before he ascended into heaven. So, then, what is peace?
People often think of quiet, calm and tranquility and happy times amongst people and even a joyous soul. While this can be descriptive of peace in one regard, the peace that I am talking about refers to the peace one has in the soul when tough times happen and life seems gloom. During these times, peace keeps a person settled and unwavering. It even helps them to stay comforted during and uncomfortable times.
This is the kind of peace which helps me to keep going despite what difficulties I might face. It keeps me focused. It helps me to not worry and it helps me to remember that God is with me— no matter what!
I want to take this time to reflect on the peace which God is blooming in my life:
God, I thank you for peace!
