Peace

This week in my personal studies I was impressed by John 14:27. In this account of the Savior, this verse sticks out to me as highly applicable at any point in time. It reads

27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

I feel that this is a teaching we should all strive to remember in our lives during times of trial. To me, this reminds me to take a step back, take a deep breath, trust in the Lord, and remember that everything will turn out fine in the long run so long as a strive to do my best and keep the commandments.

This can also be applicable to us on a more general level, just knowing that Christ is trying to calm us and give us peace in the midst of our trials. Christ performed an infinite atonement for not only all of our sins, but also all of our infirmities and trials. All we need to do is humble ourselves and ask for help.
