On a Pier Looking Out (Sundays In My City)

This week, the leader of my prayer group asked us to settle our hearts and minds before the session, perhaps by envisioning a place of peace. Living in south Louisiana, water is a constant. After hearing the news of yet another massacre at yet another school campus, I need such a place to go in my mind. For me, that would look something like the pier below that I viewed earlier this week while walking on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain.

Jesus told His disciples, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27, NIV).

  1. God tells us not to worry (or a variation) 365 times in the Bible. I find great comfort in the fact that he knows our worries are perhaps the greatest impediment in being strong in our faith, but that He is fully aware of how we work. And, like the prodigal son, he will rush out to greet us as we head home — putting aside all of those worries that rob us of peace. Thanks for the reminder.
