Well if that isn’t the understatement of our lifetime I don’t know what is. Not just November but this entire year will live in infamy. We definitely will be retelling the events of this past year for generations. Not to mention, the bizarre unfolding of this presidential election. Everything seems so messed up, disjointed, unsettled, divided, and unsure. I must admit, my days consist of wrestling with mixed feelings of anger and cheerfulness, hope and disappointment, indignation and gratefulness. Maybe you have felt the same. Maybe you feel things are getting worse or maybe you feel like things might actually be on the upswing.
It’s not my purpose to cipher your emotions and determine if they are justified or not. What I do want is for you to take the words of Jesus...simple words with such brevity...and take them to heart. First, read them intellectually. Think about them. Ponder them. Put them in perspective...eternal perspective, that is. Then, let them settle into your soul. Let them begin to move you...emotionally. Let the power of the Word, the truth of the Word, grip you in the deepest part of your being. Allow these words to transform and interpret your thoughts and feelings as we move forward in closing out this year and look to begin a new one.
Jesus said this, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” John 14:27
