perfect peace

“Ah, I knew it would come!” she said, laying her hand on her Bible.

“Knew what would come, mother?”

“Peace,” she said.

(Stepping Heavenwards)

And so there is now peace
in my heart,
peace given by the divine Saviour.

Oh Christ is the sweet sweet well of love,
joy and peace.
He heals the brokenhearted,
and I can truly testify to
how He has touched and restored me.

More than my physical being
being ravaged by stomach flu,
my mind was “tossed about
with many a conflict, many a doubt,
fightings and fears within, without”

and just as I was writhing in agony,

His voice pierces through the gloom:
light floods through that darkened sickroom.

Peace
with God,
peace with man,
peace within.
