"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

- which we quickly translate as "peace" is a very
"under-translated" Hebrew word.

Shalom has much richer meanings....including completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. When the world around us looks or feels completely chaotic....and nothing whatsoever like the picture above.....

We must remember, that God Himself wants desperately, to give us His Shalom.

God, Please help us reach out for You and Your Peace...and then may we extend it to others.

In His Dust,
