Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Within the throne of my poor heart,
Sits dangers that pull peace apart.
Competing despots of desire
Who vie to rule. my will acquire.
Yet too, I find Christ’s biding peace
That lovingly makes war’s to cease
And shares the body building fruit,
With those at one, who share his route.
The way of God’s pure peace that binds
The oneness of all humankind.
Assured of Christ’s own lasting peace
With thanks, our praise to give increase.
Lord of the shattered bow and spear,
Who makes the plough shear to appear,
That through the common calm enjoyed
Your gracious peace comes, fills our void.
“In the midst of the awesomeness, a touch comes, and you know it is the right hand of Jesus Christ. You know it is not the hand of restraint, correction, nor chastisement, but the right hand of the Everlasting Father. Whenever His hand is laid upon you, it gives inexpressible peace and comfort, and the sense that "underneath are the everlasting arms," (Deuteronomy 33:27) full of support, provision, comfort and strength.”
