Product Description

I will admit there was a time in my own personal life when I allowed problems to stress me out. I allowed situations that did not even affect me directly to stress me out. I found out that things that are within my control aren’t worth stressing out over. I found out that things that I can’t change is not going to claim me as a victim. People talking about me no longer keeps me up at night, I’ve learned to turned people into the hands of the Lord and go to sleep and KEEP MY JOY. My joy is too valuable to let anyone take it, rob it, destroy it, minimize it, deter it, break it, chop it up, take it away – my joy is too important to let anyone or anything disturb it.

Let’s go to the Word – Jesus is at the conclusion of speaking plainly but he’s not being understood by His disciples. He’s not cryptic but He’s trying to get them to understand that He’s going away. One day He will lay His life down, become crucified, stay dead three days, and then early Sunday morning get up with all power in his hand, stay here for 40 days and then catch a cloud and assume a position with the Lord at the right hand of the Father, and will be there until that day comes when the clouds will unfurl and He comes back for His church.

This has placed stressors upon the disciples – they are confused, they don’t get it, they don’t really understand it, they are quiet, motionless, they don’t say a word, so Jesus has to give them conclusionary remarks to leave some final instructions.


Jesus says that when you consider what I’ve said to you, understand why I did it. He says that I have spoken to you in the past, not that you would react with hostility or anger, I have spoken to you so that you might have peace.

In other words in order to have peace you have to understand that peace is connected to the words of Jesus. You cannot have true peace when it’s connected to other things:
