On the third day of Christmas, JESUS gave to me Peace in my Heart, Everlasting Life, and Salvation full and free.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9: 6 ESV
I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27 NLT
The peace that Jesus promises is not one that is the absence of chaos and turmoil but one in spite of. It is that blessed assurance that regardless of the present circumstances grace has got you and you are not alone. It is living this conviction every day:
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. Isaiah 43: 2 NLT
But this peace just like salvation is a gift of God and you can choose to not accept it. You can choose to worry and fret about the what-ifs and the current happenings in your life. My advice: accept the gift of peace of mind and heart in this season. Let not your heart be troubled. Jesus has overcome the world!
