“I give you peace, the kind of peace that only I can give. It isn’t like the peace that this world can give. So don’t be worried or afraid.” (John 14: 27, Contemporary English Version)
Peace is surely something we all seek. Even if we desire adventure or activity, we want to feel a sense of peace about all that we do, a certainty and a settled feeling within.
Looking to others, to a place, to a particular circumstance to bring us this tranquility often falls short. We can gain moments of feeling centered and calm, but we can just as quickly lose them when life seems to throw us turmoil, overwhelm, fear for our well-being or that of others.
But the Christ, the light of Truth, offers a peace that is transcendent. It is a powerful awareness of our oneness with God, that spiritual reality of who we are and of our security in God’s hands.
We can all open ourselves up to receiving and feeling this peace. We can gain it by accepting its presence, and then by knowing that we deserve it. We can be humbly receptive to the divine goodness, the Love that knows us in every moment and is here at all times—even the noisy and troubling ones—reminding us that we are safe, understood, and truly beloved.
