“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” John 14:27
Perhaps this grieving is your peace.
Perhaps this questioning
This shaking of foundations
Is the peace you give.
Perhaps the frustration
Is the peace you left with us.
You do not give as the world gives–
Sometimes we wish you would,
But we are grateful you do not.
Let us receive the hard and holy peace you offer.
Do not let our hearts be troubled
And do not let them be afraid.
