The Peace We Need

Amidst a full day at work, I received rather toxic messages from squabbling family members 🙂

When I think about it, the concerns and issues in those messages were really simple and could be addressed in a matured and logical way but well, we all take things differently.

My comfort in the midst of busyness and relationship challenges is that there is peace available for us. If only, we welcome it and find the means to keep it.

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27 (New Living Translation)

I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught. John 14:27 (The Message)
