Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

day 233: A Gift

John 14:27
"I am leaving you with a gift-- peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give you is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid.


If you wait for the world to make you happy, you will be miserable all of your life.

You will wait for the next big 'excitement' or 'yay you' or whatever it is that makes you 'happy' in the world-- and you will be happy for a few minutes, days even. But the joy will fade in a few days... a few minutes even.

Jesus' peace is different-- if you let it be. If you truly believe that He is in control of everything, you won't be troubled or afraid because, as the picture going around facebook says, "I've (Jesus) got this.

Don't look to the world to make you happy. The world is full of imperfect people. Look to the One who is perfect.

God Bless You :)
