Receive This Peace | Sunday Respite | 40 Gifts of Lent
I leave my peace with you.
I give my peace to you.
I do not give it to you as the world does.
Do not let your hearts be troubled.
And do not be afraid.
John 14:27 (NIrV)
Through Christ, we have peace. Through Christ we can be deeply joyful. Through Christ we can have unshakable faith. I want the kind of peace that He gives, not the kind the world gives. I want the kind of joy that he gives, not the world’s joy. I want the kind of faith that can only he can give.

Peace and joy. I want that too.
I’m finding that when I change my “stinkin thinkin” I have more peace and joy. More Grace!
Stopping by from Scripture and a Snapshot, just beautiful!

Such a sweet promise! Peace 🙂
Blessings, peace and more grace, Lyli!
Love this verse, Donna. So grateful for God’s peace.
More grace to you, Margaret! You are a wonderful encouragement and example of God’s peace at work in a person’s life. Thank you for visiting here.
Amen to that, Margaret!
This is one of my favorite verses! It’s especially powerful in the Amplified Version
I agree, Elizabeth. Glad you stopped by to read.
Beautiful picture, and beautiful words.
Thank you! More Grace to you!
WOW! This was gorgeous. Thank you!!
Hi Joanne, YES! The word, gorgeous is a good word to describe the beauty of God’s peace. More Grace to you!
I am so grateful for the peace that is ours through Christ. I am also reading through the New Testament with Margaret. It has been such a blessing to learn anew from what I thought was familiar. I am so grateful for His Word which is always alive and living and served up fresh each time we read. I was your neighbor this morning at Sunday Stillness. Have a blessed Sunday!
Hi (new) friend…thank you for visiting here and leaving a profound comment! “His Word is always alive and living and serve up fresh each time we read.” I love the discipline of daily personal worship through the Lent Challenge. More Grace to you! Donna
