"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

"...not as the world gives..."....that tentative, tenuous, temporary "peace"...that fleeting flimsy false sense of well-being that comes from pills and potions, the desensitizing din of distractions, the clamor of competing deities attempting to drown out the chaos...
....but palpable permanent pervasive Peace. Peace that "passes all understanding". Peace that is a guard and a sentry surrounding our minds, hovering over our hearts. Peace that is His manifest Presence poured out unreservedly from the Cross, paid for in full, bought with His blood, for You, His Beloved.
Peace be upon you, Peace undergird you, Peace guide you and keep you...
~***~Peace be with you~***~

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the Peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
