My and Let

John 14:27 “Shalom I leave you, My shalom I give to you; but not as the world gives! Do not let your heart be troubled or afraid. source

Two particular words: My and Let

My peace.
His peace.
HIS peace He gives us.
Perfect.
No flaws.
No defects. 
Perfect peace.
That IS His gift to us.

Let?
That’s our part.
Not let.
We choose BECAUSE of His peace to LET NOT our hearts be troubled or afraid.

SO! When I am troubled and afraid I KNOW I have forsaken His peace and because of that I have let myself get all in a tizzy.
