~ "What was I so upset about again???"
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27)
These are the comforting words Jesus left with his disciples. He reminds us everyday that we have a peace within us that cannot be moved.
We have all heard testimony (and probably know through our own life) that the pain we go through is always overshadowed by the joy and peace when it finally comes. But no matter how many times we experience it, we are ever amazed at what God can do! Getting through the pain is the hard part, but having a greater love to focus on makes it well worth the journey. He'll never stop loving us, he'll always protect us and we are forever in his mercy and grace!
Keep focused on what is important. Know that whatever it is God has in store for you, he will reveal it when he is ready! His time ~ not ours!!! Let go of the past troubles of your heart and don't be afraid to step out in faith today! God is watching!
