Wonderful Peace

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

Every time I hear about the latest terrorist attack - the suicide bomber, the knife wielding madman, the truck driving sadist, the body count, the packed emergency wards - my heart aches. What senseless loss of life and the misery! 

If only, if only there could be peace.

“The world” needs peace. However, it’s not the only thing. For so many people, “peaceful” is the last word they would use to describe themselves.

If only things could be different!

Wouldn’t it be an amazing thing to be at peace? To go to work or school in peace? To go to the grocery store or fill up your car in peace? To go home in peace — to walk in, close the door, be with your family and just have peace? 

Peace outside. Peace inside. Peace! 

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. Paraphrase)
