Peace

“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

I take comfort in knowing that my God gives me peace.  There is no need to worry or fear.  I often find myself fearful of what the future holds.  God hasn't let me down so far, and he's promised that he'll walk this road with me to the end!  No matter if David has a job past April, or I have one past June, or Xander is getting the best possible care from his parents; there are so many things to worry about!  So I'm thankful that I don't have to.  Jesus told me so.

Jesus said, "I do not give to you as the world gives." That means that what he gives me will last forever - salvation.  His love for me endures forever and when all is said and done I get to live with him in heaven for eternity.

Peace.

Oh how I struggle to not worry too. I am meditating on Isaiah 41:10 right now. God has gone before us and knows what we need! :)
