Real Peace

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27) 
What if someone told you that you never had to be anxious again? Would you laugh or roll your eyes? How can we not be anxious? 
Each of us has stressors, worries, and difficulties. But God wants us to turn our worries into prayers. As we give Him our burdens to carry, it lightens the heaviness in our hearts and minds.  

Some might mistake peace for lack of conflict, positive thinking, or even control. But that isn’t peace. Peace is not dependent on our circumstances. 
Of course, when things are going well, we feel excited and happy. But, true peace is found in trusting the Lord, even when things are not going the way we hope or want. 

Real peace has faith that God is in control whatever the obstacle, situation, diagnosis, or loss.
Lord, will you help me to trust you with my pain today? I need your strength. Amen
God is the reason why even in pain, I smile; in confusion, I understand; in betrayal, I trust; and in fear, I continue to fight. James 1:12, Blessed is the man that endures trials: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. God loves you and is far more powerful than the thing you fear most. He sees, He hears and He will deliver.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
