Peace Be With You

Thursday 27th March 2008

Jesus Himself stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you".

The two disciples have returned to Jerusalem with the startling news of having met Jesus on the road to Emmaus. Into the midst of the excited confusion comes Jesus Himself. His first words to the disciples are,"Peace be with you".

My world gets excited, agitated, clouded with misunderstanding and anxiety, just like the Easter disciples. The very same Jesus, the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, walks into the midst of my hubbub and says, "Peace be with you". What a blessing ; what a relief. I can walk into today with the peace of Jesus calming the world's confusion about me. I claim it.

Lord Jesus, Prince of Peace, walk beside me today. Let your peace be my hallmark.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
