mondays and let John 14: 27

 

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

 

Of all the “lets” we have looked at so far, this one probably bogs us down the most.  When we have little or no control over what is happening, our default emotional setting is to worry.  And face it, there is much in our lives that seem worthy of worrying about:

our health, finances, our children’s problems, crime, our government’s choices, world problems, and more.

Sometimes we even worry about past mistakes.

 

Jesus calls us away from worry and fear into trusting in Him.  Remember with me the children’s song:  JESUS LOVES ME THIS I KNOW. Remember especially this line: FOR THEY (WE) ARE WEAK BUT HE IS STRONG. In our weak times, in our fearful times, Jesus asks us to remember that His peace is strong and He will see us through every difficulty we face. Let us come to Jesus then like the little children of this song and draw strength from His love and peace. 

 

seeking with you to not let our hearts be troubled, susie

 

Jesus loves me this I know

For the Bible tells me so

Little ones (and big ones like us) to Him belong

They are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me, The Bible tells me so.
