Peace is always in the midst of it all
Running through like an endless river
Flowing from the inner core of every being
Monitored and sustained by the Prince of Peace
No matter the ordeal, peace will be there
Whether in the highest mountain or lowest valley,
Peace will always mark its presence
Take a deep breathe and let peace remind you of its presence

Hello everyone, I am believing everyone had a graceful week. It is the weekend, and hopefully, it will be great for you. I just wanted to say hi to everyone, since I have not posted anything this week.  You all are on my mind and I have not ceased praying for you.

Prince of Peace

Since it is the weekend, my prayer is that you encounter the marvelous peace of God. His peace is endless and cannot be tamed by anything in this world. It is always present no matter your situation. Nothing happening to you is a surprise to your maker. God is not back at the drawing board trying to figure out how to deliver you or restore you. He’s an all-knowing God, and nothing is outside of his reach including you and your circumstances.

Remember this when peace seems to be fading like water vapor – do not panic, ‘Be still and know he is God.’ Also keep in mind this conviction from Paul to silence the raging seas “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21). There’s no loss in the kingdom of God. Either way, you still win and victory is yours in Christ Jesus.

Therefore, don’t let anything trouble your peace. “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” Philippians 4:4

Thank you for reading. Wishing you all a very peaceful weekend, with God’s constant reminder of whose child you are and who is the one that sustains you, amen. Stay Blessed Always.

  6. poeticallyyours360 – US – I love words, I love writing, I love the art of expression! Expression through the lens of a camera, expression through paintings, expression through craftsmanship and expression that is deliberately not harmful. I am a self-proclaimed poet, therapeutic writer, seeker of truth, serenity, and understanding. I am social and anti-social. I am a conversationalist. I am love, I am hope, and I am significant. I am a survivor. I’ve been redeemed, restored, delivered and healed. I’ve mentally, emotionally and spiritually been in the pit of despair, renounced fear, announced faith and accepted God’s amazing grace. How old I am is not relevant, but what I have learned is. How I look is not relevant, but how I see me is. What my ethnicity is matters only to those that are divisive or looking to prove a point. My bottom line statement on everything is: We are all Humans, what is detrimental for this HUMAN to live is also DETRIMENTAL for other HUMANS to live.
    poeticallyyours360 says:

    Marie, beautiful poetry, like a river flows I felt the peace flowing along with your poem. Then the reminder of it presence! thanks and may the peace of God surround you and you have a wonderful weekend. Blessings that come from on High!
