Actually, you do have a choice.
You have a choice to live in turmoil or to live in peace.
Jesus gave us peace.
Peace I leave with you,
My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not you heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.
We already have this peace inside of us. Jesus gave it to us.
But He also told us to use it.
To remain in peace.
Peace is a choice just like it is a choice to worry or be angry.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts….
There will be many situations to put peace to the test.
It is how we choose to act in those situations on whether we keep our peace.
And the peace of God
which surpasses all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Keep the Peace!
