You can change your environment
Jesus gives peace, a peace not dependent on circumstances. You can be at peace even when others are afraid. But your emotional state is not automatic. Even though you have God's peace, you still have to chose to not be troubled or afraid. (See John 14:27.)
Jesus gives you the ability to bless others with peace. (See Matthew 10:12-13.)
Surprisingly, Jesus even expects you to bring peace even to the environment. He calms storms and then asks his followers, "Where is your faith?" Jesus expects his followers to be able to tell the storms they encounter to be at peace. (See Luke 8:22-25).
God, thank you that you give us peace. Help us to be a healing presence to the people and situations we encounter. Thank you. Amen.
The video at the top of the page encourages you to calm the storms around you.
