From Jesus Calling Kids by Sarah Young
The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
I died a criminal’s death to buy you the gift of Peace. But instead of accepting My gift, it sometimes seems that you’re ignoring it. You hold on to your worries, fears, and loneliness so tightly that you can’t receive My Peace. It hurts Me to see you all tied up in anxious knots. This is not what I want for you.
You feel you are too busy and stressed to bring your problems to Me. But here’s the truth: The busier and more stressed you are, the more you need to spend time with Me. Take a deep breath, and then take another one—and another. Be still in My Presence. Let My Peace grow inside you as you trust Me with all your worries. Hold on to My gift of Peace like the treasure that it is.
