"Wings of a Dove" was
my grandad's favourite
And yet, peace is meant to be something that we carry with us: Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you" (John 14:27). He didn't intend for us to be always stressed out and stretched so thinly that we left no room for peace in our lives. There are plenty of commercials that promise peace if you'll only use the right shampoo or drink the right coffee or eat the right afternoon snack. Jesus promises peace to those who have chosen to follow him. I worry sometimes that we have collectively rejected the peace of Jesus in favour of a life of crazy.
As ever, I have no secrets on how to do it. Perhaps that will be next week's topic! :) In the meantime, to get us started: What brings you peace?
