“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”
A very close friend of mine sent this to me yesterday, but I was only able to finally look at it a little while ago; I love this verse. We hear the first sentence at Mass all the time, and I bet most of you are probably not paying attention during this time. I am often guilty of this, I’ll admit. But how true, the world could never give us the peace we need, only God can do that. I am going to try to remember this verse as I get closer and closer to finals because it will help keep me grounded and to not worry because God will calm me down when I feel the stress of tests and last minute papers start to come over me. Take a break today and send this to someone who is struggling to get ready for finals and needs to not be afraid of what is to come.
