He Is My Peace
Life is filled with stressful times, and we must find our rest...
In our dear Savior Jesus Christ...we can be so blessed
How often do we faint and fall...and struggle on our own?
When Jesus gave his life for us, and chose us as his own
Why can't we just rely on him and never fret or worry?
It is because we jump ahead... we're always in a hurry
We don't accept his peace and rest...but rush ahead in fear
When we should run into His arms, and know that He is near!
In this world we will have trials, and that's a guarantee
But Jesus hears our every prayer, and knows each desperate plea
Today I'm calling out to Him amidst my list of woes
And I will wait in quietness, and let him fight the foes
For I am weak, but He is strong...in Him I find release
And so I bow before His throne, and seek much needed peace
I know that it will come to me in His appointed time
He lifts my head and speaks to me with soothing words sublime

I was stressed today and my blood pressure was up. I settled down and communed with the Lord, and wrote this poem. I know that he is in control...and I am trusting Him. He is my peace!
The beautiful sunrise is a picture from my daughter's house out in the country. They see the most beautiful sunrises! I look at this and it just reminds me of my Creator. He holds the whole world in His hands!
The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace.
~ Psalm 29:11, NLT
