Peace!

P1450582

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give it to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”
~ John 14:27

 Four years ago, I wrote:
It’s a long and winding road, this journey of life. Sometimes, I walk on the mountain top where it is sunny and exhilarating. Other times, I walk along a stream down in the valley where it is cool and refreshing. Sometimes there is a fork on the road and I must choose. Other times there is a happy confluence of paths, serendipitous moments when people, places and things just come together and the whole universe makes sense. Sometimes I walk alone, but always there are people on the same path: walking with me, passing me by, meeting and greeting me, offering help, friendship and companionship. Sometimes the path becomes thorny and even dangerous. Other times there is no path at all and I may feel lost. But I just need to remember he’s got us all in the palm of his hands.
For most of the time, I walk with peace for I keep the promise of the Lord in my heart, “My peace I give to you.” And therefore, I walk with heart untroubled and unafraid.
