After Jesus’ death and resurrection his disciples were in the upper room, and very scared. Their leader had been captured and killed so they assumed that it was only a matter of time before  the Romans came after them as well. Then Jesus appeared. “Peace be with you,”  was his greeting. After it sank in that He really was alive and standing with them, again He said, ” Peace be with you !”  John 20:19 & 21.

I went to sleep last night and woke up this morning worried about money- or rather, the lack of it!  But I had taken my eyes off Jesus. The disciples forgot that Jesus had told them that he would live again, so they were afraid. He told them twice -” Peace be with you!”  I mentally know that God will supply all of my needs. Now I need to look to him and let my heart step into His peace.
