A Letter to a Father Searching for Peace




I can hear it, but I can’t see it. You wear a smile and laugh at jokes but if only they could see the inner turmoil that you are facing. It seems as though you can’t get a break. It’s one thing after the other, but you refuse to complain. You refuse to complain because you feel that would expose your little faith or better yet the issues that are tormenting you. You can’t even see your strength. The strength of you persevering in spite of your circumstances. The situations of hurt and betrayal from friends but you choose to continue to love them because even Jesus gave Judas grace. I have a secret to tell you that is the true meaning of “don’t be weary in well-doing.” The frustration of not knowing what to do but you continue to trust God and believe that all things are working for your good. Everything is working for you not against you. The hurt exposed you to God’s healing so now you know there is no pain that God can’t heal. The person who walked away allowed you to see that Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you. I know I can still hear it the inner turmoil. May I introduce you to peace? In John chapter 14 verse 27 it reads “Peace I leave with you; MY peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled and do not be afraid.” You no longer have to hold on to this troubling turmoil that keeps you up at night or the turmoil that leaves you with a heavy heart. Accept the peace of God. Allow it to rest on you and in you. After you’ve received the peace of God, I pray that you continue to walk in it from day to day. Peace looks good on you.
