Peace, not as the world gives

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.–John 14:27

I really liked this verse from the sermon at my church yesterday.  I especially like the reminder that God has so much more for us than this broken world can give.  He has the best peace there is.  It can soothe worries and concerns that not even the greatest things in this world can assuage. As I continue in a new stage of this grief journey, I need to remind myself not be troubled and not to be afraid.  I can lean on Him and trust His plan.  Thanks for the good reminder of your power and love, Lord.
