Only God can release
a true kind of peace;
a peace that abides
throughout our insides.
It cannot be found
hanging around;
it is not external,
it is internal.
His peace
won’t cease
under pressure,
that’s for sure.
His peace is like gold,
it’s priceless to hold.
No one can birth
this peace on earth.
God’s peace comes from heaven
it does not come from leaven.
In Him it is found
there it does abound.
It is such a waste
if you never did taste
this wonderful peace
which He does release.

Do Not Fear *Isaiah 41:9-13

Do not fear for the Lord Your God loves you. He created you by forming you in the womb. He desires a relationship with you. Do not fear – instead call upon His Name.
9 I took you from the ends of the earth,
from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, ‘You are My servant’;
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
11 “All who rage against you
will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you
will be as nothing and perish.
12 Though you search for your enemies,
you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you
will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the LORD your God
who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, Do not fear;
I will help you.

Do You Not Know *Isaiah 40:21-31

There is hope in the Lord God!
21 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
25 “To whom will you compare Me?
Or who is My equal?” says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of His great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.


It’s not what I think
nor what I can muster up
The picture is full
yet only portions are viewed
To catch a glimpse
To smell minutely
To taste a morsel
To touch a piece
It’s so profound
It does confound
our perception
our existence
the essence of reality
To sit and meditate
To ponder the newness
of an exposed piece of truth
It’s so different
so unexpected
but wholesome
To God be the glory
