But, here I am, with three months still left of school, and I can't find my desk.
Have I mentioned (recently) that I tend to be a little OCD. My brain works in boxes, compartmentalizing whenever possible. And that usually works for me. This is what I like to think my brain looks like on a good day. But...
Do you know what that's like, Dear Reader? According to Mark's Gospel, Jesus did, too.
Jesus and his followers were in a very busy place. There were so many people that he and his followers did not even have time to eat. He said to them, “Come with me. We will go to a quiet place to be alone. There we will get some rest.”
Mark 6:31 ERV
Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]
John 14:27 AMP
The same way I need to settle my physical work area, I also have to carve out time to receive the anointing oil of the peace only Christ can give. I hope you will have a place and a space to receive the gift of peace from our Savior.
