A New Year, but the Same Peace
The Lord blesses his people with peace. 
Psalm 29:11

Pixie, our toy fox terrier, was so high-strung that she seldom relaxed. Perhaps it was her size that made everything seem like a threat to her. Only when she was in front of the fireplace would her ears finally go down and her legs stretch out.

We also know something about threats and stress. We’ve carried burdens from the old year into the new. And those burdens seem to pick up more weight day by day. Who knows what new problems will drop down on our shoulders tomorrow? It’s enough to make us keep our ears up and never relax, to run around and “bark” in anxiety. We are so small compared to what we have to live with and what looms before us.

What’s the solution? Where can we find release from our fears and relaxation under our burdens? There’s only one place - one person - our Lord. He who prepared in Jesus the perfect peace we need for our souls will also provide what we need for our daily lives. With eyes on such a loving Lord, we can go forward even though the steps are painful. We can smile even in the midst of tears. When hearts of faith lie down before God’s promises, the result is always peace.

Lord, fasten our hearts on your gracious promises and fill our lives with peace. Amen.
By Pastor Richard E. Lauersdorf
