“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 14:27

TODAY’S WORD…

“Peace I bequeath to you, My own peace I give you, a peace the world cannot give, this is My gift to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”

– John 14:27

 

REFLECTION…

The peace which Jesus gives us completely surpasses the peace of the world, which can be so superficial and misleading. The peace of Christ is, above all, our reconciliation with God and our reconciliation with one another; it is entrusting ourselves totally to the Lord. The peace of Christ is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit; it is “serenity of mind, tranquility of soul, simplicity of heart, a bond of love, a union of charity.” (St. Augustine)

Christ is our peace.

 

QUOTE…

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”   – St. Paul (Phil 4:6-7)

 

PRAYER…

Quiet my mind, Lord, make me still before you.

Calm my restless heart, Lord, make me more like you.

Fill me with Your peace, Lord, and take over.
