“Do not be troubled,” he tells me. “Do not be afraid,” he reassures me. He offers me peace, His peace. Yet I am still troubled, still fearful, still lacking peace. The world surrounds me with facades of peace. I hide behind that facade of peace, yet fear and trouble still lurk nearby. You give me your peace dear Lord. You extend your hand of comfort unlike any I know. It is a true peace. Help me to hang on to your peace, your hope, your eternal promises. You are faithful and full of truth. Help me to fully grasp the peace you give. Thank you for the love and grace you give me each day.

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. – John 14:27 (NASB)
