“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

There was once was a teacher who asked his class how much weight was the glass of water in his hand. One student answered 8 ounces, another said 12 and another said 16. The teacher would later say it doesn't matter how much it weighs, it's how long he would hold it for. If he held it for a minute nothing would happen. If he held it for an hour his arm would hurt. If he held it for the whole day his arm would grow numb and paralyzed. So it is with the worries and stresses of life if we think about them for a long time we will grow numb and paralyzed.That’s why the teacher emphasized to JUST PUT THE GLASS DOWN!

As a believer we put the glass down by giving it to our Loving Heavenly Father through prayer. There are things in our lives we simply can’t change but through giving it to the Lord He will give us back a peace that will give us rest and a joy through all of our circumstances.
