John 14:27 - Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
I know there are many troubled hearts in the world, I know some of them personally.
This morning started off with a message from a High School friend who short of a miracle is nearing the end of her life on this earth. She has fought a good fight with an incredible attitude and spirit. Cancer may win this fight but she has eternity of perfect health~
Some struggle with new beginnings, attempting to find a new normal for themselves.
Some are trying to remain hopeful when their self is sometimes tempted to doubt, to allow their faith to be nudged by fear..
Some live without hope of tomorrow and see no way out of the pit they are living in.
My Encouragement for them is, there is One bigger than You and your circumstance.
He gives peace to the weary, hope to the hopeless, strength to the weak.
Just believe and trust Him.
Peace is not as simple as the absence of fear. Peace is a person. He said He would never leave us. We let our hearts become troubled when we forget that He is with us.
Hoping today and everyday you will each encourage those who cross your path. It's not always apparent when someone needs and encouraging word. It's what echos from my heart today ~
