[Jesus said,] “Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27c
Every day brings events and situations that tempt me to let my heart be troubled and afraid.
Today I will remember I have a choice: I can let the temptation to be afraid overtake me, or I can trust in the Lord’s peace and refuse fear. The Holy Spirit will remind me and teach me how to choose peace.
Lord, lead me not into the temptation of fear. Open my heart to accept your peace.
