“Understanding God’s Peace” By Deborah Ann

There is a peace in my heart,
surpassing my understanding
but every day I can feel . . .
it growing and expanding.

It is a gift Jesus gave me,
the day I came to believe
and the closer I get to Him
the more of it I receive.

It’s not the kind of peace I feel,
when everything is going well
but I sense it’s from knowing
where the Holy Spirit dwells.

It’s a peace void of bitterness,
resentment and hostility
this calmness that I feel . . .
has no room for animosity.

There is a peace in my heart,
giving me understanding . . .
and the more I seek God’s will
the more it keeps expanding!

Isaiah 26:3

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee:
 because he trusteth in thee.”
