“How do I find peace when there is so much to do, so many things that demand my attention?” she cried out to me.
My heart leaped out to her. I knew something of her life.
I realized some she had gone through in the past few years.
And there was more. Much more.
I understood the loneliness she experienced
one day after another.
I knew all of this.
And that was just the reason I longed for her to discover a life of peace.
Peace in the midst of the pain.
Peace even though there was no earthly change in her circumstances.
Peace in spite of disappointment, discouragement and death.
Peace the fills every cell of your body with rest and contentment.
Where do we go for that kind of peace?
There is only One
That can touch those deep down places with His Peace.
His Name is Jesus.
Years ago I discovered Him and He changed my life forever.
No matter what happens,
or doesn’t happen
No matter where I am
or where I am not
No matter what I have
or don’t have
He is with me
full and running over.
Long ago Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you;
My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27
His peace for our troubles.
His peace for our worries.
His peace for our loss.
He is as close to you now as your very breath.
Waiting for you to let Him have it all.
Longing to give you His Peace.
No more running away,
No more hiding and pretending.
His Peace changes everything
and every one.
It changes me.
It changes you.
Live in His Peace today, my friends.
