Thought to Ponder : Peace of Mind!

Thought to Ponder : Peace of Mind!
“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind.”John 14:27 (NLT)
Life comes with surprises. Some of them you welcome, and some of them you don’t. When Jesus told His disciples He was leaving them, they were in panic mode. So He said to them, “When the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you. I’m leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid” (vv. 26-27 NLT). You need to recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit who lives within you, and build a relationship with Him. He’s not an “it” or a “thing” or an ethereal spirit that’s beyond your reach. He is Christ’s “representative.” He’s willing to teach you what you don’t know, and to remind you of the things you so easily forget. And best of all, He will give you “peace of mind and heart,” regardless of what life throws at you.
