A person doesn’t truly know what Peace entails until they are stripped of their peace and left fearful and afraid. Peace is what allows us to lay our head down at night and sleep without fearing what could happen to us. Let me give you an example of a person without peace. A person without peace is one who barely sleeps because they fear that they will have bad dreams or afraid of dying in their sleep. A person without peace is afraid to leave their house because of what will happen when they do. A person without peace will always be looking over their shoulder, wondering what could happen or who could harm them.
Now I look at a person who has some peace in their life, they will rest soundly at night. They may not fear death as much because they have some faith in God. Let me tell you of one who can give you the peace you desire, his name is Jesus Christ. He said, “Come unto me ye that heaven laden and I will give you rest,” Matthew 11:28). See the Bible says, that we can cast our cares and burdens upon the Lord, because he cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). Jesus is not just anyone, he is the son of the most high God. He mediates on our behalf. He loves us and wants to give us that peace we desire, if we call upon him. He said, “All those that come to him, he will in no wise cast out (John 6:37). Trust in the Lord and call upon him and believe and he will give you the peace you desire.
Peace is given from one immortal soul.
It’s reaching one’s everlasting goal.
Silence in the quietness of open field,
Feeling protection in one’s inner shield.
Choosing rather to be meek and have power,
than to be weak as a delicate flower.
A turtle dove reposing on a tree,
feeling peace when God’s strength rest upon me.
Kneeling at the altar to pray,
Going to church on the Lord’s day.
A calming effect on an inner core,
challenges gone forever more.
It comes when war is over and freedom roars,
The red, white, blue- Old glory soars.
A family, nation living in one accord,
A rested soul that sleeps in the Lord.
