   At church our theme (which the speakers follow and teaches and song leaders can if they desire) in July and August is the fruit of the Spirit. I am teaching nursery class and so I decided to follow that theme as well. This week's lesson is on peace. I had been thinking a lot about it and then I had the opportunity recently to visit with a friend who is not a Christian and it really jumped out at me the difference in knowing Christ or not. She does not have the same peace that I have and I truly hope to be able to share it with her some day! 

Here are some neat verses on peace that I hope you will enjoy. If you don't have peace in your life please give your cares to Jesus!

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

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

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7
