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
As we journey through uncertainty we can become 'bogged down' by anxiety and apprehension. In a time so unprecedented, something that we share with those closest to us and those across the oceans, is the search for peace. Through this scripture Jesus tells us that He does not give as the world gives. His peace He leaves with us, a gift free to us, to bring us hope, rest and love and to still the chaos of the world. Because Jesus does not give as the world gives, we know that this gift is lasting and secure—unfailing and unmoved by circumstances.
