Our Place of Peace

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen all seems dark,

and hope feels lost;

look to the Lord,

He’s paid the cost.

He conquered death,

defeated grave;

provides all hope,

and makes us brave.

In Him, there’s peace,

true safety there;

in death or life,

He is our prayer.

When storms they rage,

He is our calm;

when ache is great,

He’s healing balm.

He will equip,

us each to do;

all He has asked,

He’ll see us through.

Do not give up,

on Him who’s here;

all in His hands,

release the fear.

“Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” – (Romans 8:39)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that our perception of what is, is not Your reality. Thank You that even when the night is darkest, You are orchestrating the dawning of a new day. Thank You that in the midst of life’s storms, there is peace found in You. Forgive us Father, for taking our eyes off of You, and allowing the waves to overwhelm us. Thank You that You remain with us, ready to hold our heart and hand, the moment we reach back toward You. Thank You that all that You ask is not meant to be accomplished in our strength, but rather, it is only in Your strength, that we are able to do exceedingly more than we could ever imagine. May many come to know You, as we trust You to provide all that we lack, and move mightily wherever You ask. Let Your love be what people see in me. Amen.

Anne update: Anne’s appointment yesterday was exhausting for her. As I sat with her in the late afternoon, I was in awe of the peace that was present, despite the devastating pain she was in. Let’s give glory to God for His generous outpouring of the people whom He has prepared, and may we all continue to contend for Anne’s complete healing. God bless you all!
Embraced by His grace, Shannon
