“Can I buy some peace of mind?”

I just find this amusing. Ironically amusing, as if the drug handbook was mocking me. Because if only peace of mind can be bought at your local drugstore, I would have bought a truckload of it. Yet sleepless nights driven by haunting memories cannot be relieved by sedatives. No amount of narcotic- analgesic can ease the sorrow of the soul. Give me rivotril or morphine or anesthetize me with propofol; they are of no avail. Only Jesus can give my mind and heart the peace and rest it yearns. And as I wait for that tranquility, let my body slip away into slumber. Bed is calling.

Peace I leave with you: my peace I give you. I do not give you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27
