John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
Sometimes in life we are faced with situations that we cannot change. The attitude and conflict of the lost, bad decisions by others with serious consequences, the rejection of Christ when you have tried to deliver the good news, a terminal disease, living in daily pain either in your heart or body . . . The list goes on and on. Often our first response is to desperately search to find a way to deal with the circumstance on our own, in our own humanness. We quickly find there is no rest, the burden is heavy and we are left with no peace. And then, the light goes on! Go to the light!
When our heart is deeply troubled by circumstances beyond what we can control, there is only one place to turn to make us feel better — that is to Jesus. May his peace and comfort be yours today.
