Jn 16:29-33

Jesus tells the disciples again about his and their relationship with the Father. Because of the way he says the words, they seem to have some understanding, though naïve, of what he has been telling them. He goes on to warn them that they will scatter like sheep in the days ahead. But he offers words of comfort, telling them to seek peace in him.

Yours is a peace that surpasses understanding. I just need to allow that peace to outweigh the anxiety I often feel.
