Peace? Yes, peace.

Just a very quick note today — because this is a thought that has already changed my day. It’s worth dashing off a reminder to you …

Are we foolish and naïve to even suggest one can have peace in this world?

Jesus said He gives us peace. It’s part of the inheritance we have as children of God. Now. Today. Yes, even in this world.

And He says it is a peace like nothing the world can give.

It’s only through and from Him.

Oswald Chambers says in today’s meditation in My Utmost for His Highest: “We become troubled because we have not been taking Him into account.”

What happens when you face the thing that is troubling you, wearing you down, frightening you, or creating chaos in your life — when you face it, taking our Lord into account?

Doesn’t everything change when we take Jesus into account?

My day just did.
