Jesus is able to to give me peace, even when those I love are ill.
My cousin is in ICU tonight.
Jesus is able to give me peace, even as I realize that I am not in control of others’ lives.
Those I love must make decisions for themselves.
Jesus is able to give me peace, even when I realize that I cannot know the future.
God alone knows the future and the past in its entirety.
In the passage above, Jesus told His disciples not to have troubled hearts or to let their hearts be afraid.
Instead, He wanted them to have peace.
I think this is what He wants now, for me and for you.
Does your heart need His peace tonight?
Are you troubled and afraid?
