"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27 NKJV

The weekend is here! For many this means respite from a busy week of traffic jams, kid's basketball games, volleyball practice, homework and somehow making time to spend with the Lord. In the midst of all the busyness, it is easy to feel weary and dry. But God is our continual source of refreshing!

Did you ever wonder how someone like the Apostle Paul could write about peace and joy when he had been flogged, shipwrecked and imprisoned? Paul had an encounter with Jesus Christ that forever changed his life. He knew that no matter what he faced, Jesus was always with him and would always be his strength.

Today we encourage you to spend time with the Lord. Jesus wants to encounter you on a daily basis. He wants you filled to overflowing with His joy and peace that passes all understanding!
