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
By now I would expect that life’s challenges would have given me the wisdom to remain at peace no matter what the circumstances. Unfortunately I still get distressed by trivial daily routines and matters of the world over which I have no control. I long for a faith so strong that it will surpass all of the drama, fluff and unnecessary worries the human race brings upon itself. Fear and dread envelop my soul.
I continue to struggle with self-absorption. But I will continue to pray and perhaps one day I will conquer my greatest enemy – myself.
