I love this quote...and it fits perfectly with the passage from Luke 24:35-48
The disciples were astonished and terrified as Jesus approached them. The crucifixion had come and gone. Jesus was dead. And yet, there He stood in their midst. “Peace be with you,” Jesus spoke.
Jesus comes to us too…even when we sometimes sit startled and terrified in the mess…the mess of day-to-day struggles, broken relationships, illness, financial hardship…the list is endless. But Jesus still comes to bring us peace of mind, relieve our anxious hearts, and invite us to trust Him on the journey. Because the mess…the suffering…is never the end of the story. Not with Jesus.
So invite Him to come to you today and be your peace. Ask Him to help you to focus on the promise and not the mess.
