Non-returnable, non-refundable, fully functional Christmas gift from Jesus, Himself

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 blades I’ve never tried on my lovely food processor,  we use the gift without reading the directions or discovering 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 this peace can become fully functional in my life.
