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.
The verse above is my confirmation verse.
At the time it was given to me, I suppose my pastor hoped it would be a source of comfort in the years following the confirmation of my faith.
I'm sure he hoped I would revisit this verse,
hoped I would treasure it,
maybe even cling to it.
If he had those hopes
he can rest assured.
