8th May 2012 John 14:27-end
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. “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.
All day I've been rushing around getting things done; the first chance to stop was when I led a meditation on love at our Reflective Space evening at church. And what kept coming to me over and over was the first verse of this passage
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you
If I needed reminding that God is real and alive and with us then this was just that. thank you God.
