There are so many things in our troubled world that rob us of peace, and we don’t have to look far to find them.

There are the recent wars, earthquakes, famines and other disasters both natural and caused by man and so many people displaced, hurting, broken, dying.

And those are just the things happening outside of us. What about our personal struggles? Conflict in our families and relationships? The insidious presence of mental illness?

There’s so much going on in the world, and it can be overwhelming. Whether we’re struggling with troubles in our own lives or feeling the barrage of bad news everytime we look at the headlines, peace can feel elusive – if not impossible.

“How can we feel peace with everything going on?”

I’m sure the disciples asked this question when Jesus told them He would be leaving. They’d followed Him faithfully for three years and now, it was all about to change. We can imagine they were feeling confused, anxious, and overwhelmed. Jesus said to them, “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).

What did Jesus mean, when He promised peace? Surely He knew that the disciples, like us, were overwhelmed by everything going on. Was it an empty promise, or can we really find peace while living in our troubled world?
