Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other. (Psalms 85:10 NRSV)
A man went to his doctor to find out why he had been having such severe headaches. The doctor ran some tests and after a few hours called the man into his office. "I have terrible news," he told the patient. "Your condition is terminal."

"Oh no!" the man wailed. "How long do I have?"

"Ten," began the doctor.

"Ten what?" the patient interrupted. "Days? Months? Years?"

"Nine," said the doctor, "eight, seven, six . . ."

There is a man who was having a bad day. There is a man living in panic, not peace. True peace is very difficult to find in this world. Very few people find that center of calm that allows them to cope successfully with life. Some people never find it.

Jesus said to his disciples, "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."

God of peace, help me to put my worries at your feet, so that I may fully soak up your centering peace. In Jesus name, Amen.
