Scripture

“I have told you these things so that you will have peace in Me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage! I have conquered the world.” – John 16:33

Reflection

What troubles are you facing in life right now? Are you letting those worries and trials keep you from maintaining your interior peace? God is bigger than those burdens…He has conquered them! Do not allow yourself to lose peace, for the devil knows that you are at your weakest when he has caused you to lose the interior peace you have in Christ. God promises us he has everything under His control. Trust in that.

Challenge: What concrete things can you do this week to cultivate peace in your life?

Prayer

Lead me to your still streams O Lord
Where I can kneel in the waters of life
Lay down my anxious thoughts
And cast all my cares on You

Here I will wait a while
Wait a while
And bathe in the life-giving waters

Bathe my mind in Your Spirit O God
Come fill my being with Your peace

Bathe my heart with Your love O God
Come still my being with Your peace

Bathe my spirit with Your freedom O God
Come saturate this life with Your peace.

Amen.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
