Peace to possess

Matthew 5: 4

​“You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.”

​One day John came into the Mission and asked if I would help him find his Mum. He’d lost touch some years before but wanted to see her again. We finally tracked her down and she came to Glasgow to meet up with him. On her second visit he brought her to the Mission to meet all of us, his ‘other family’. In a quiet moment she told me that every night before she went to sleep she had wondered where John was and if he was still alive. ”Now I have peace,” she said; “I know you are looking after him and you will let me know if anything ever happens to him.”

Lord, today brings – peace to possess
