Peace...



Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. 
Not as the world gives do I give to you. 
Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
 [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]  
John 14:27 Amplified Bible

  1. Peace... not as the world gives. This is the peace I want. I am so glad God doesn't work things out the way the world works things out. So glad.

  3. He says 'stop allowing' and 'do not permit'! It's a choice! I choose peace.

  5. It's a peace that those without Him do not understand...one of my favorite verses. Thanks for sharing, and your beautiful rose.
