Dear Jesus

Thank Me for the gift of My Peace: a gift of such immense proportions that you cannot fathom its depth or breadth.

Dear Jesus,

I have searched for Peace in many different places, but only Yours is real and enduring. Wonderful as Your Peace is, it often eludes me. When I let down my guard, anxiety creeps in without my permission. It tugs at the corners of my mind, drawing me away from awareness of You. Please teach me how to enjoy Your Peace more continually.

Beloved, you can thank Me for the gift of My Peace even when you’re feeling anxious. My Peace is not so much a feeling as it is an unchangeable condition. It is permanent forgiveness: My eternal gift to you through My blood. I am not only the Giver of true Peace; I Myself am your Peace. It is every bit as available to you as I am. When you seek My Presence and find Me, you also encounter My Peace.

Thanking Me for the gift of My Peace, regardless of how you feel, is ultimately an act of trust. Your gratitude and trust will draw you closer to Me—the Lord of Peace. Rejoice as you explore with Me the immense proportions of My gift: Peace at all times and in every way!

For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

[Colossians 1:19–20]

For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility.

[Ephesians 2:14]

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

[1 Peter 5:7]

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

[2 Thessalonians 3:16]
