My peace I give you {Scripture and a Snapshot}

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."  John 14:27

When I saw this week's memory verse for our 100 Bible Verses in 2013 challenge, I immediately thought of a time when I desperately needed peace and comfort.

I took this picture of a rainbow almost four years ago. It was the view from Lauren's room on the sixth floor of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Lauren had been in the hospital waiting for a heart transplant for four months at this point.

When I think back to those days, I cannot explain how I had so much peace. Peace that helped me dream up imaginary games to entertain an active three-year-old on long afternoons. Peace that allowed me to get a good night's sleep on the couch next to Lauren's hospital bed. Most importantly, peace that filled my heart with a confidence in knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that God was in control.

That sort of peace can only come from God.
