A non-returnable, non-exchangeable, fully functional gift

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. Jn. 14:27

Sometimes we receive a gift and never take it out of the box. Or perhaps, like the four food processor blades I’ve never tried,  we use the gift but don’t actually read the directions and discover everything it can do. Like all God’s gifts, this peace cannot be returned or exchanged but we can settle for less than full functionality.

Lord, thanks for the amazing gift of peace…now please help me figure out how it works.
