Peace. What is it?

Peace. What is it?

John 14:27 (ASV) 

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 fearful.

Merriam-Webster describes peace as the following: freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility.

With everything that is going on in the world today all of the issues that are plaguing us it is wonderful to know that there is a place that we can go to enjoy this gift that Christ left us. I personally know that the daily struggles are hard and they are heavy to carry sometimes.  It’s almost impossible to feel free. But I’m excited because Jesus made a promise right before his own suffering began that He was leaving an amazing gift for us and that gift is peace. No matter what we are facing we can face it with Christ.  We don’t have to carry the burden on our own, oh no! He is carrying it with us and sometimes He is also carrying it for us. So I thank the Lord every day for every opportunity that He grants me to live in this gift of peace- to know that it is something that no one can take from me.  It’s a permanent reminder that He loves me.
