“If this day you only knew what makes for peace – but now it is hidden from your eyes.” (Luke 19:42)
Is your heart at peace? With all that is going on in our world – the pandemic, the divisiveness, the relentless anxiety and chaos of life – is it even possible to know peace?
The short answer is “Yes, it is possible.”
However, we should not beat ourselves up when we are not at peace. There are legitimate reasons, at times, for it to be “hidden from our eyes.” It is at those times we lose focus – we allow the stresses of the world to divert our attention from what is important. That’s OK; we are human.
The important thing to keep in mind is that peace doesn’t need to remain hidden. We know what makes for peace – a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Invite Him back into your heart. Ask for His help in navigating difficult times. Allow Him to walk with you. Peace will return to your heart.
