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 (NIV)
In life, things can get really crazy. From the busyness of sports, jobs, and homework, it’s easy to allow your life to become stressful. And when the stress and pressure of life begin to build up, you can become stressed out to the point where it affects your sleep, relationships and it even steals your joy.
We might live in a stressed out world. But you don’t have to live your life stressed out. Instead, you can choose to rely on God to be your source of peace.
Peace doesn’t come automatically, you’ve got to choose to be at peace, even when things seem difficult.
