Rest in Peace

“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
A man, fond of practical jokes, decided late one night to send his friend a collect telegram which read: “I am perfectly well.”
A week later, the joker received a heavy parcel…collect…on which he had to pay considerable charges. Upon opening it, he found a big block of concrete which had this message:
“This is the weight your telegram lifted from my mind.”
There are times when we all have a lot on our minds – family problems, the health of a parent, a child our own, financial problems, problems at work, at home, at school, all the above.
What if there were a way to have those troubles lifted? What if we could give them to someone who would carry them for us? What if we could them to one who would be able to take care of the problem AND take care of us at the same time?
GOOD NEWS! We can do exactly that. God tells us to cast our cares upon Him – and in turn receive His peace and comfort, knowing He cares for us. It is then we can rest, comforted and cared for in a way in which only God can do.
My prayer this week is that you will have the faith to hand those cares over to Him and rest in God’s peace.
