“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

This morning I am weary.  You know the feeling?  It somehow runs deeper than being physically tired, as if the very soul and core of your being has been pushed past its breaking point and now every part of you is tired.

I am weary from many things – disappointments and dreams lost.  However, I am thankful that the peace that I crave most in life isn’t something I have to find the strength to come up with on my own.  As Jesus promises in this verse in John, we have been given His peace.  I am thankful that I do not have to rely on the things of this world in order for my heart to find rest.

As you go about today, keep this verse from John in your heart.  Jesus has promised you all the peace you’ll ever need – take Him up on His offer.
