Today was a beautiful day and I got to spend most of it outside. I find time in the woods, whether alone or with a group of students, peaceful. While we each may have a place that is peaceful for us here and now, these places are not as peaceful as the peace found through Jesus Christ!
God sent Jesus to earth to provide us a path to forgiveness and redemption. It is by turning away from sin and to salvation through Jesus Christ that we can find the deepest peace for our souls. We can rest our hearts, minds, and bodies in the peace provided to us by God. We do not have to be troubled or afraid, but rather connected to God through Jesus Christ. He is giving us peace as long as we are willing to receive it!
Be connected to God through Jesus Christ and you will be given peace. You just have to receive it!
Thank You for the peace You provide through Your Son. Help me to always find rest, peace, and rejuvenation through accepting the peace that is given. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
