Looking for Peace?

If you’re like me, your life is busy. Whether its work, or family activities, we all have a way of cramming too much into our days. It’s hard to get it all done and still find time to rest.

As an author, my time is measured in deadlines, which determine how busy my days are. And I have a tendency to overload myself.

Of course, there are ways to take short breaks in between busy times. A walk, or a meal shared with special people. Time with family. Vacations. All are good ways to rejuvenate, but unfortunately, the busyness doesn’t go away.

But in the midst of it all, through the turmoil going on in the world, there’s a promise of peace from Jesus that assures us no matter what storm we face we can have His peace.

In John 14:27 Jesus says, “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.”

What an amazing promise. One that I find myself repeating many times during busy days.

And just like Jesus’ promise that we can have peace here on earth, His promise in John 14:1-3 tells us when have a special place prepared for us by Him.

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

So, no matter how busy you are, rest on the promises made by the One who defeated death, and find your peace in His presence.

All the best…
