"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
Today I have a dear friend having a stressful moment..haven't we all had them? Some more often than others? Some more intense than others?
This verse came to mind as I was visiting with her and I realized that too often I don't rely on His peace. I need to rest in His promise..daily. See sometimes I bring that stress into my own life..with worry, fear, anxiety..and I don't trust His word. NOW...sometimes stress comes because we are walking, breathing, upright folk that just experience stuff! And Stuff can bring stress. All that said...those times I bring it upon myself...I gotta make a change..and trust HIM and HIS promise. Oh and with the other stuff...I still need to trust HIM and HIS promise.
I also know that I think I have it all figured out what that Peace should look like.
But He tells me that He does not give like the world does...and how often do I completely forget that!
Hope you are having a blessed day.
