Peace be still

Be still and know that I am God…

And we take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ…

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts…

Emotions run amuck wreak havoc in my heart.  Anger, sadness, bitterness, worry and guilt each threaten to undo my strength.

And I search and I pray and I listen and I read and He whispers peace, be still .  

And I trust God’s voice and I try not to run away, but toward the Healer and He whispers peace, be still.

And I envy my dear Dad in glory and I pray for grace upon grace and He whispers peace, be still.

And I trust that my prayers are not in vain and the feelings will subside (they always do) and He whispers peace, be still.

And I know He will provide strength to show love and give mercy and offer forgiveness and forsake worry and He whispers peace, be still.

And He who is able is also faithful…not only for me but for you, dear one.   Whatever you’re struggling with today–the hurt and worry and pain–He sees.  He knows.  He cares.  And He’s whispering to your heart peace, be still.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. ~Peter
